President Trump says he's not gunning for war with Iran, but he insists he won't let that country get a nuclear weapon. In an interview on Fox News, Trump blamed Iran for instigating wars across the Middle East.
Trump added that Iran “must not be allowed to get a nuclear weapon,” but says he doesn't want war with Iran and hopes he can solve the problem economically. Still, he sounds ready for a squabble. "I don’t want to fight,” he offered. “But you do have situations like Iran, you can’t let them have nuclear weapons -- you just can’t let that happen.”
Relations with Iran have been strained in recent weeks, prompting the Trump administration to send a carrier strike group to the country. But the President is also amping up on Twitter. “If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran,” he noted prior to his interview airing. “Never threaten the United States again.”
