Mazie Hirono slams Trump’s Iran threats; He’s ‘acting like he is the dictator he wants to be’

Bailey Vogt The Washington TimesMay 20, 2019

Sen. Mazie Hirono responded Monday to President Trump’s weekend statement that “if Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran.”

“If the president thinks he can resolve all these problems with military might he’s so wrong. There is something Secretary Mattis said, ‘we need a diplomatic resolution to all these conflicts.’ This is the president once again thumping his chest acting like he is the dictator he wants to be,” the Hawaii Democrat said on CNN’s “New Day” show, responding to the president’s tweet.

Ms. Hirono also responded to Mr. Trump’s 2017 remarks saying North Korea would be met with “fire and fury” if they continue to make threats.
