SANDY (AP)- Republican U.S. Sen. Mike Lee of Utah says he still supports President Donald Trump, despite Lee’s criticism of the lack of information given to members of Congress about the reasons for killing an Iranian military leader.

Lee spokes Saturday in Sandy at the annual convention of the Utah Eagle Forum, a far-right group active in state politics.

Lee called Wednesday’s briefing probably the worst he’s seen on a military issue in the nine years he’s served in the Senate.

Lee says Trump is making the U.S. look stronger through the restraint of power, but he still supports a resolution to curb Trump’s ability to expand the conflict with Iran.
