According to President Donald Trump, missiles that Iran launched against the United States, were funded by former President Barack Obama.
Trump said, “The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration.”
He was referring to the $150 billion that Barack Obama returned to the Tehran regime as part of the Iran nuclear deal.
American bases in Iraq were targeted by about sixteen missiles launched by the military of Iran.
The attack by Iran was in response to Trump’s decision to kill Iranian terrorist commander Qasem Soleimani.

Trump said that Iran’s hostilities in the Middle East only increased after Obama’s “foolish” 2013 nuclear deal, noting that Iran used the funds to back a campaign of terror around the world.
“Iran went on a terror spree, funded by the money from the deal, and created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Iraq,” he said.

In 2016, then-Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged that some of the billions returned to Iran could end up being used for terrorist activities.
“I think that some of it will end up in the hands of the IRGC or other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists,” he said in a CNBC interview in January 2016.
