Thats hilarious...an Iranian drone by itself, was threatening the safety of the ship and its crew ( a Navy destroyer)???

That must have been one powerful drone!
Yes, a drone can deliver an explosive payload. A U.S. drone has destroyed a Russian-made T-72 in Syria, for example. Best to be cautious.

When another country attempts to shoot down a U.S. drone over top of them we call them terrorists.

Default Iran denied that the U.S. Navy downed one of its drones in the Strait of Hormuz

TEHRAN—Iran denied that the U.S. Navy downed one of its drones in the Strait of Hormuz, a day after several close encounters between American warships and the Iranian military in the vital oil shipping route further raised tensions between the nations.

“We have not lost any drone in the Strait of Hormuz nor anywhere else,” Abbas Araghchi, Iran’s deputy foreign minister, said on Twitter. “I am worried that USS Boxer has shot down their own [drone] by mistake!”

President Trump on Thursday said the USS Boxer, an amphibious assault ship, took defensive action against a drone that was flying too close to it. He called the drone’s approach the latest “of many provocative and hostile actions by Iran against vessels operating in international waters.”"

Democratic House votes to prohibit funding for war with Iran

Just as the Republican-controlled Congress blocked Obama from going to war with Syria.

No one believes the politicians pushing these wars, nor should they.

Seems simple enough...
With this addendum Iran says they didn’t lose a drone it either never happened or we shot our own down.
At Trump’s order.
