Trump Suggests Iran May Have Shot U.S. Drone Down On Accident

According to a report by Reuters, on Thursday, US President Donald Trump downplayed Iran's downing of a US military drone suggesting that it may have been shot down by mistake and that “it would have made a big difference” to him if the remotely-controlled aircraft had been piloted.

Tehran reportedly claimed that the unarmed Global Hawk surveillance drone was on a spy mission over its territory while Washington claimed that it was downed over international airspace.
