Hours after suicide bombers and gunmen launched deadly assaults against Iran?s parliament and the tomb of its former supreme leader in Tehran on Wednesday, U.S. President Donald Trump extended seemingly backhanded condolences to the grieving nation.
?We grieve and pray for the innocent victims of the terrorist attacks in Iran, and for the Iranian people, who are going through such challenging times,? Trump said in a press release.
He didn?t stop there.
?We underscore that states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil that they promote,? Trump concluded.
The twin attacks, claimed by the so-called Islamic State terrorist group, killed at least 12 people and injured dozens. The six known assailants were also killed, and five other suspects have been detained so far.
