Trump denies U.S. plan to send 120,000 troops to counter 'Iran threat'

Trump denies U.S. plan to send 120,000 troops to counter 'Iran threat' | 14 May 2019 | President Donald Trump on Tuesday denied a New York Times report that U.S. officials were discussing a military plan to send up to 120,000 troops to the Middle East to counter any attack or nuclear weapons acceleration by Iran. "I think it’s fake news, OK? Now, would I do that? Absolutely. But we have not planned for that. Hopefully we’re not going to have to plan for that. And if we did that, we'd send a hell of a lot more troops than that," Trump told reporters at the White House.
