What did Iran do to prompt you to send an aircraft carrier to the region?
Well, they were threatening. And we have information. We have information that you don't want to know about. They were very threatening. And we just want to have... we have to have great security for this country and for a lot of other places.
Is there risk of military confrontation, sir?
I guess you could say that always, right? Isn't it, I mean, you know, always? I don't want to say no. But hopefully that won't happen. We have one of the most powerful ships in the world that's loaded up, and we don't want to have to do anything. What I'd like to see with Iran, I'd like to see them call me. Their economy is a mess ever since I took away the Iran deal. They have inflation that's the highest number I've ever heard. They're having riots every weekend and during the week even. And what they should be doing is calling me up, sitting down. We can make a deal, a fair deal. We just don't want them to have nuclear weapons. Not too much to ask. And we would help put them back into great shape. They're in bad shape right now. I look forward to the day where we can actually help Iran. We're not looking to hurt Iran. I want them to be strong and great and have a great economy.
