President Trump is meeting with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis at the White House Tuesday, as tensions with Iran remain high.
A major focus of the visit for Mitsotakis, a senior administration official told reporters, will be to get the word out that Greece is open for business for American investors and convey that the country has reduced regulatory red tape. The overshadowing situation with Iran is sure to come up, too.
Mr. Trump continues to pressure Iran over Twitter, and over the weekend threatened that 52 sites in Iran will be targeted if Iran retaliates for the U.S. airstrike that killed Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani.
Top administration officials are briefing the “Gang of Eight” on the strike and situation with Iran Tuesday afternoon, and the full House and Senate are expected to be briefed Wednesday.
