WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump warned on Monday it would be a big mistake for Iran to try anything against the United States after Washington deployed an aircraft carrier and more jet fighters to the region over concerns about rising tensions with Tehran.

Trump, speaking to reporters at the White House, said the United States would see what happens with Iran but it would be a big mistake for it to try anything. His comments came after the United Arab Emirates reported four commercial vessels had been sabotaged near Fujairah emirate just outside the Strait of Hormuz.
