WASHINGTON – President Trump will address the world from the White House at 11 AM EST (GMT-5) on Wednesday, January 8, 2020. The President will be joined by Vice President Mike Pence.
The President will address the growing tensions between Iran and the United States following rocket attacks at two bases in Iraq.
The United States Department of Defense says that there were no US casualties resulting from the attacks. Additionally, the DOD says that there was no major damage.

Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.”
