Asked about a potential war with Iran, President Trump replied “I hope we don’t but we’re in a very strong position if something should happen”. He added that “I’m not talking boots on the ground, I’m just saying if something would happen, it wouldn’t last very long”. Later, he said that “if [a deal] doesn’t happen, that’s fine with me, I have unlimited time, as far as I’m concerned.”
