Trump: NY Times Troop Report 'Fake News'

Tuesday, 14 May 2019 12:02 PM

President Donald Trump is dismissing a report that the U.S. is planning for a military conflict with Iran.

Trump labeled "fake news" Tuesday's report in The New York Times that the White House is reviewing military plans against Iran that could result in sending 120,000 U.S. troops to the Middle East if Iran attacks American forces or steps up work on nuclear weapons.

Trump said he would "absolutely" be willing to send troops, but that he's not planned for that and hopefully won't have to plan for that.

He says if the U.S. was going to get into a military conflict with Iran, "we'd send a hell of a lot more" troops.

Trump spoke to reporters at the White House before traveling to Louisiana.
