Trump sending Navy strike group to Middle East to send ‘message’ to Iran

The United States is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the Middle East region in response to “troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” from the Iranian government.

National Security Adviser John Bolton released a statement Sunday night confirming the strike group is being deployed. Bolton said the show of force would send a “clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime” that it cannot attack U.S. allies or interests in the region. He wrote that any attack would be “met with unrelenting force.”

“The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forces,” Bolton said.
