The Ukrainian plane traveling from Tehran crashed shortly before take-off on Tuesday.

Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier, D.-Calif., called the recent Ukrainian plane crash in Tehran “collateral damage” from President Donald Trump’s strike taking out Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani.

During an appearance on CNN, Speier said:

“If what is being projected is true; this is yet another example of collateral damage from the actions that have been taken in a provocative way by the president of the United States."

The Ukrainian plane traveling from Tehran crashed shortly before take-off on Tuesday.

Iran initially blamed the crash on a mechanical error.

Still, the intelligence of the U.S. and its allies believe it the plane was shot down, possibly in error, hours before Iran launched 15 ballistic missiles at military bases in Iraq housing U.S. forces.

Speier told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer she could not speak about the details of the crash because they are classified.

“I would say that the continued saber-rattling by the president doesn’t help us,” Speier added.

The congresswoman labeled Iran and Soleimani as “bad actors," before saying we must “find a way to live together.”

“Iran has been a bad actor,” Speier said.

“Soleimani was a bad actor," she added.

"But there are many people in that region and around the world who are bad actors. We have to find a way to live together and attempt to move towards peace.”

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed during a Thursday press conference that intelligence suggests Iran shot down the Ukranian airliner with a missile, while also implying that Trump is partially to blame for the incident.

Multiple reports have confirmed that an Iranian missile shot down the Ukrainian passenger plane that crashed in Iran on Wednesday.

The crash killed all 176 people on board, including 63 Canadian citizens.

Trudeau hinted during Thursday's press conference that the United States and Trump administration, specifically, may be partially responsible for Iran shooting the plane down.

“How much responsibility does United States bear for this tragedy?”

One reporter asked, “do you feel that the U.S. is partly responsible given that they created the situation in which the missiles were launched?”

“I think that’s one of the many questions that people will be thinking about and trying to find answers to,” Trudeau replied.
