Trump will be willing to start a war over an issue which was taken care of by the previous POTUS and Trump walked away from.

What was interesting is that the drone was not shot down, it was destroyed "electronically", whatever that means. Sounds like the Navy has a secret weapon.

Default U.S. Navy shoots down Iranian drone in Strait of Hormuz

cue hysteria about trump starting a war with iran..

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/18/trum...ian-drone.html

Quote:
President Donald Trump said Thursday that a U.S. Navy ship had destroyed an Iranian drone in a “defensive action,” escalating already high tensions in the oil-rich Gulf region.

The USS Boxer, an amphibious assault ship, took down the drone in the Strait of Hormuz earlier Thursday, Trump said.

During an event at the White House, Trump said, “The Boxer took defensive action against an Iranian drone, which had closed into a very, very near distance, approximately 1000 yards, ignoring multiple calls to stand down and was threatening the safety of the ship and the ship’s crew.”

“The drone was immediately destroyed,” Trump said.
