President Trump announced Wednesday that he was backing away from any further military action against Iran following its failed missile strike on an American base in Iraq. Officials believe the weak retaliation effort may have been intended to save face rather than inflict causalities.
During a televised statement from the Grand Foyer of the White House Trump said, “Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world… The United States is ready to embrace peace with all who seek it.”
Ben Shapiro called the media to task for trying to sell the false narrative of policy failure and imminent war as a result of Trump’s leadership.
Just 24 hours earlier, Jim Acosta of CNN reported Iran’s missile attack on Al-Asad Airbase in Iraq was “exactly what many foreign policy and national security analysts feared … whether the President would be able to get on top of the situation.”
But as Shapiro notes, that narrative was the failure, not Trump’s call as President. At his news conference, Trump said, “We must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place.”
Unfortunately, it appears the Democrats and the media would rather see Trump fail than Iran admit defeat.
Watch the video to learn why Ben Shapiro thinks the mainstream media’s Iran narrative is not only “dumb” but an “absolute failure.”
