Politicians are responding to the Iranian attack on two air bases in Iraq where the U.S. military is stationed.

Oklahoma Senator James Lankford tweeted a response to the attack Tuesday evening saying:

"Iran's aggression against the US clearly indicates that they continue to want to do harm to Americans & our nation. I am monitoring the situation tonight & I pray for all the service women & men who are defending our nation," Lankford tweeted.

President Donald Trump also tweeted his reaction saying:

"All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning," President Trump tweeted.
