Trump Says He "Hopes" U.S. Doesn't Go To War With Iran

President Donald Trump on Thursday said he hopes the US is not "going to war with Iran." The US and Iran are in the midst of a military standoff after the Trump administration deployed military assets to the Middle East in response to unspecified threats.

The Trump administration has so far offered vague answers on what its plans are regarding Iran, which has even frustrated some Republican lawmakers as Democrats raise alarm bells about a potential war.
