Q    Do you want war with Iran, Mr. President?  Do you want war with Iran?

PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Do I want war?  I don’t want war with anybody.  I’m somebody that would like not to have war.  We have the strongest military in the world.
We’ve spent more than a trillion and a half dollars in the last short period of time on our military.  Nobody has even come close.  We have the best equipment in the world.  We have the best missiles.  And as you say, you just bought the Patriot system.
