Donald Trump has told reporters ‘I’m not somebody that wants to go into war,’
adding ‘I prefer other people to do it for me.’
As tensions between the US and Iran increased the President warned the Iranian regime that war would be ‘the official end’ of their country.
Mr Trump is confident that if he doesn’t get his own way and is forced to throw his toys out of Airforce One and declare war, the US will ‘obliterate Iran with the biggest baddest most nuclear missiles the world has ever seen.’ But should war break out he’s assured Americans not to worry saying, ‘I’ll be safe. I’ve got an armed guard, a bunker, and skin like a rhino. And those Iranians will have to get past scores of young soldiers before they even get close to me. Even if they do get past the teenage cannon fodder and it starts to look like I’m under threat, I’ve got a load of transgender wannabe soldiers that I can use to form a human shield.’
US army leaders have said they ‘fully respect’ Trump’s comments that he doesn’t want to go to war saying, ‘The last thing you need in the middle of a warzone is a bright orange soldier with a mouth the size of Dallas, and hands too small to squeeze a trigger.’
Officials in Iran also have downplayed Tehran’s appetite for war.
They say the Middle East has been plagued by tyrannical bullys in recent years and the whole region has worked hard to try to achieve stability. And they have no desire to now get into a row with a tyrannical bully from the west.
