Trump said in his new series of Twitter posts that he is sure that Iran "will want to talk soon," commenting on his decision making on Washington's policy in the Middle East.
….Different opinions are expressed and I make a decisive and final decision — it is a very simple process. All sides, views, and policies are covered. I’m sure that Iran will want to talk soon.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 15, 2019
"I'm sure that Iran will want to talk soon," Trump said via Twitter, while denying reports that his administration is divided on matters of Middle East policy.
Tensions in the region have been high recently, as the United States reinforced its military presence in the Persian Gulf with the Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier and a bomber task force to send "a clear and unmistakable message" to Tehran. Washington also approved the additional deployment of the Patriot missile defence system and Arlington amphibious warship to the region. Iran has repeatedly expressed its readiness to retaliate in the event of a military conflict.
