NBC News reports:
President Donald Trump on Thursday told reporters that “you’ll soon find out” whether the U.S. will strike Iran as tensions between the two countries ratcheted up.
U.S. officials said earlier in the day that an Iranian missile had shot down an American drone over the Strait of Hormuz. Iran claimed that the drone was above its territory.
Talking with reporters, Trump repeated the claim that the drone was flying above international waters, and said Iran had made a mistake. He declined to provide more specifics about a potential U.S. response.
Iran made a very big mistake!
