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

Trump was responding to 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 says it’s “fake news.” He says 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 Tuesday at the White House before traveling to Louisiana.

Last week Fox News did a show about how Trump was sending an aircraft carrier task force to the Persian Gulf to scare Iran. Now he's saying he doesn't want a war? If Iran sent an aircraft carrier to the USA we'd think it meant war.

Chucham, not wanting war doesn’t mean you should portray weakness in the face of Iran’s provocative moves! Obama’s gone thank G-d, and the days of allowing terrorists to intimidate us are over!!! Trump is rightfully showing the Iran terror regime that while he’s not looking for war and certainly isn’t instigation it, he will not hesitate to destroy the enemy should they threaten us! Understand?

Making a show of force doesn't mean you want a war.
