Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters has such disdain for President Trump that she is taking the side of Iran’s official story as opposed to the U.S. Pentagon.
Iran claimed the U.S. drone was in their airspace, a claim echoed by Waters despite her clearly having no evidence to back it up other than taking Iran for their word.
Meanwhile, the U.S Pentagon has already released a map disputing the claim the U.S. drone violated Iranian airspace.
Nevertheless, Waters sided with Iran.
“Trump, you get no credit for so-called stopping the strike against Iran,” she huffed. “Why was the unmanned drone in Iran’s airspace? Why the surveillance? Don’t provoke and then pretend innocence.”
Even CNN confirmed the “incident occurred in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz”.
“Trump, you started this confrontation w/ Iran,” she said. “Why did you unilaterally renege on the JCPOA agreement of the US and six other countries to avoid Iran’s nuclear buildup?” referring to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or the Iran nuclear agreement negotiated by the Obama administration.
“Trump, we know you are angling for war with Iran. Stop it now. Iran was in compliance with the JCPOA. You and Netanyahu had better not try to take us to war. We don’t need it & Israel doesn’t need it,” Waters wrote.
“Trump, so you are placing more sanctions on Iran. You are trying to further provoke Iran so you can strike. You’re alienating the other countries who were a part of the JCPOA. How can you expect our allies to join w/ us in a war with Iran?”
