Now, the president has commented on a ‘catastrophic accident’ at a launch site in Iran, and no one is sure exactly how much of what he said is true. This is what Donald said on Twitter:
The United States of America was not involved in the catastrophic accident during final launch preparations for the Safir SLV Launch at Semnan Launch Site One in Iran. I wish Iran best wishes and good luck in determining what happened at Site One. pic.twitter.com/z0iDj2L0Y3

According to The Independent:
“The tweet comes a day after Iran minister of information and communications technology denied that the explosion had occurred.”
“The president’s tweet was accompanied by a high resolution photo of the site, with several areas highlighted and labelled.

Numerous vehicles had been spotted at the site in preparation for the launch attempt.”
People immediately had something to say about the timing of Trump’s post, as well as the mystery surrounding the incident. Below are some of the responses Trump got to his tweet:
