United States President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday that there is “no doubt” the US Navy shot down an Iranian drone after it neared an American warship a day earlier despite Iran insistingnone of its unmanned aircraft was downed.
Trump then asked US National Security Adviser John Bolton who was with him in the Oval Office to confirm his claims. “There’s no question that this was an Iranian drone,” Bolton said.
Earlier in the day, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) released footage recorded by the drone the US claims to have shot down and claimed it includes pictures of the USS Boxer taken before and after the time Washington says the aircraft was downed.
