Trump: Lethal response proportional answer to Saudi attack

United States President Donald Trump said on Monday a lethal military response to the attack on Saudi Arabia would be "proportional," shortly after he claimed Iran was responsible for two drone attacks on Saudi Aramco facilities over the weekend.

However, Trump stated he would like to avoid conflict with Tehran, adding the use of diplomacy is "never exhausted with Iran" and that he remains convinced "they want to make a deal."

The head of the Defense Department Mark Esper previously accused Iran of "undermining rules-based international order," asserting the US was working with its partners to address the "unprecedented attack."
