House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., says Americans have “no appetite” for a war with Iran in the wake of attacks on two commercial tankers.

In an interview aired Sunday on CNN's GPS program hosted by Fareed Zakaria, the lawmaker said she doesn’t think President Donald Trump has any desire for a military confrontation with Tehran either.

“We have absolutely no appetite for going to war or to be provocative and create situations that might evoke those responses where mistakes could be made,” she said, adding, “That’s a very dangerous thing.”

“The American people have no appetite for war with Iran,” she added.

Pelosi lamented the United States’ withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal in the first place.

“What is their motivation to be provocative with the Iranians? Why did the president turn his back on the Iranian nuclear agreement? What's the logic except... that it was negotiated by President [Barack] Obama?” Pelosi said.

“So then [Trump] comes in and undoes that and inflames the U.S./Iran  issue. Why? What is the purpose?” she added. “I think he probably knows there's no appetite for war among the American people.”

According to Pelosi, the House Armed Services Committee advancing a $733 billion spending bill “put nothing in [that] would be considered authorization of use of military force against Iran,” she added.
