Sen. Bernie Sanders will deliver his first public remarks on the ongoing crisis between the U.S. and Iran since a drone strike President Donald Trump ordered killed Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani on Thursday.

“Trump promised to end endless wars,” Sanders declared in a statement Thursday night, “but this action puts us on the path to another one.”
