In a statement from Mar-a-Lago, President Trump said the US is not seeking regime change in Iran following an attack that killed a top Iranian general.
"We do not seek regime change," he said.
Trump added, "the Iranian regime's aggression in the region — including its use of proxy fighters to destabilize its neighbors — must end and it must end now."
"We took action last night to stop a war. We did not take action to start a war," Trump said.
