President Donald Trump on Friday tweeted his first remarks since the U.S. airstrike that killed Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, one of that country’s most powerful military and political figures.

“Iran never won a war, but never lost a negotiation!” Trump first tweeted Friday morning, although it was not immediately clear what the president meant by the statement.

In follow-up tweets later in the morning, Trump said Soleimani was responsible for numerous deaths, including of thousands of Americans, and that he “was both hated and feared within the country.”

“General Qassem Soleimani has killed or badly wounded thousands of Americans over an extended period of time, and was plotting to kill many more … but got caught! He was directly and indirectly responsible for the death of millions of people, including the recent large number …. of PROTESTERS killed in Iran itself,” Trump tweeted.

“While Iran will never be able to properly admit it, Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country. They are not nearly as saddened as the leaders will let the outside world believe. He should have been taken out many years ago!”

Trump later followed up with another tweet saying that the Iraqi people “don’t want to be dominated & controlled by Iran” and noting the vast amount of money the U.S. has spent on the country.

“Over the last 15 years, Iran has gained more … and more control over Iraq, and the people of Iraq are not happy with that. It will never end well!”
