President Trump: No Americans, Iraqis Harmed In Iran Missile Attack, New Sanctions Coming

Description:

President Donald Trump spoke from the White House Wednesday after Iran fired more than a dozen ballistic missiles at two Iraqi air bases housing U.S. forces in retaliation to the killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani. Trump said no Americans or Iraqis were harmed in Iran's attack, and Iran appears to be standing down. The U.S., according to Trump, will impose further economic sanctions on Iran, and that the "United States is ready to embrace peace." Aired on 1/8/20.


President Trump and the first lady arrived in India for their first official visit to the country. They were met with huge crowds in Ahmedabad ahead of a joint rally with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. CBS News White House correspondents Weijia Jiang and Ben Tracy are traveling with the president and joined CBSN with details.
With over 100,000 COVID-19 cases in the U.S., President Trump and the coronavirus task force are engaged in an all-out war to make America healthy again and get citizens back to work. One America's Jenn Pellegrino has more on the president's latest actions.
President Trump, speaking in India, said Tuesday that while the coronavirus is a "very serious thing" but is "under control" in the U.S. and will "go away."
President Trump dominates the Republican primary in New Hampshire as he ran virtually unopposed. One America's Neil W. McCabe spoke to former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski about the president's victory.
