Trump: 120K Troops To Iran Is ‘Fake News’
President Trump slammed The New York Times Monday for a story concerning alleged plans to send 120,000 troops to the Middle East in preparation for a war with Iran.
Trump declared that the piece is ‘fake news’, but noted that if conflict does break out then he will send “a hell of a lot more” troops.
“I think it’s fake news, OK?” Trump said, but added “Now would I do that? Absolutely.”
“But I have not planned for that.” The President added, noting that “If we did that, we’d send a hell of a lot more troops than that.”
