McCarthy Is Confident Trump’s ‘Long-Term Game Plan’ With Iran Will Lead to Another Foreign Policy Win

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke out in support of President Donald Trump’s Iran gameplan during an interview with Fox News on Friday.

McCarthy discussed a meeting the president had with American officials after Iran shot down a Navy drone on Monday.

“I think this was a very good meeting because it was different than in the past, the president brought both sides in, showed them the information and able to ask any question you have. The president has an amazing team around him,” McCarthy said.


He claimed that the president was adamant that he would not make the same choices as previous administrations.

“The president was very clear about what he wants to achieve with Iran, to never allow them to have a nuclear weapon,” said McCarthy. “This agreement that everybody talks about that Obama agreed to, guarantees them a nuclear weapon in a few short years.”

The president tweeted out an explanation for his reasoning behind stopping an attack on Iran.

“We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, how many will die. 150 people, sir, was the answer from a General. 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone. I am in no hurry, our Military is rebuilt, new, and ready to go, by far the best in the world.”

The lawmaker pointed out that Trump’s gameplan is going after long-term success.

“He has a long-term gameplan here, and it doesn’t mean that you have to act within the few hours, but what the president is trying to do is achieve something very large.”

As IJR Red previously reported, Republicans are torn over whether the president should be able to take action without congressional approval. While he called off the attack, it is uncertain if he will seek out congressional approval for similar situations.

A nuclear armed Iran is totally unacceptable no matter who is in The White House. Hopefully no one else who is ever POTUS will be stupid enough to give Iran almost two billion dollars.


The Iranian people are already hurting from the sanctions Trump had put in place. I’d be for increasing the sanctions on them until they say “Uncle”. Then the US would be in a much better position to “negotiate” the Iran nuclear weapons question. No American lives lost.

I trust his decision.


Global cabal at it again – funny how the Iran stuff keeping NXIVM off the MSM/Cable cycle. It’s bigger then people think. And for those that want to attack, go do your research.


I wonder what will happen when gets a huggy-bear, kissy-face letter or tweet from Iran’s leader. What do you bet Trump will treat him like all of his other close friends: the leaders of Russia, China and North Korea?

Great decision not to attack. That’s exactly what the Dems want him to do.

Exactly what I would have done if I were Trump.
I hate war and it should be avoided if at all possible. But if it comes to war then so be it. a horrible loss of innocent human life but, as God’s Word says, “The rain falls on both the good and the bad.” Still, I remain optimistic and support the CIC’s (Our president) decision.
