President Trump: US ‘locked and loaded’ following attack on Saudi oil facility


(ABC) – The White House has not officially blamed anyone for drone attacks at a Saudi oil facility, but the Secretary of State has called out Iran. President Donald Trump said on Twitter Sunday that the US is “locked and loaded” and ready to respond.

Late Sunday, a senior administration official told ABC News that in addition to the drone strikes, there were nearly one dozen cruise missile strikes.

Iranian officials have denied responsibility, but the incident could heighten growing US-Iranian tensions.
