Despite criticism of President Donald Trump's pullback on a military strike on Iran after its shooting down an U.S. drone, the president is now in the "right groove" for a strong response, according to former CIA Director James Woolsey told Newsmax TV.

"I think the Iranians will find try to some way to retaliate and to do forcefully," Woolsey told Tuesday's "Newsmax Now." "I think President Trump is in the right groove now to responding strongly himself."

Woolsey praised the administration's two-part move of pulling back on a retaliatory strike and strengthening their response through economic sanctions, but Woolsey would prefer if the president stopped giving the Iranians are public boost and just imposed sanctions quietly and with a "smile."

"You can be effective without using force by increasing the power of any of the economic sanctions," Woolsey said, adding President Trump can now move to stop Iran from moving their funds around in the world of finance.

". . . I think it would be best if he did them and smiled quietly. We don't really need for the Iranians to have booster chants and going back and forth with booster chants."

Woolsey is co-author of "Electromagnetic Defense Task Force (EDTF): 2018 Report," which was released earlier this spring.
