Trump on Iranian drone: 'No doubt about it... we shot it down', ' we have the greatest ships '

Iran state TV claims VIDEO proves ‘no drone was downed’ by US in Strait of Hormuz!

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps released footage which it says disproves the US claim of shooting down an Iranian drone over the Strait of Hormuz, showing the video was transmitted after the alleged time it was destroyed.

US President Donald Trump said Friday that there was "no doubt" that the U.S. military shot down an Iranian drone after denials from Tehran and threatened to respond to any further provocations from the country.

Speaking to reporters in the Oval Office, Trump maintained his Thursday statement that the United States shot down the drone as a defensive action after the aircraft ignored calls to stand down.

"They shot down the drone," he said, adding that Washington will respond to any further provocations.

"We have the greatest people in the world, we have the greatest equipment in the world, we have the greatest ships — the most deadly ships, we don't want to have to use them, but they're the most deadly ships ever conceived. And we hope for their sake they don't do anything foolish. If they do, they will pay a price like nobody's ever paid a price," he said.

Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, added that “there’s no question that this was an Iranian drone," which he said presented a threat.

The president also said that he was not concerned that the incident may set off a clash with Iran.

However, the Iran's elite military unit published the footage on Friday and it was aired and commented on live on the state TV channel Press TV. The video appears to depict American warship USS Boxer sailing through the strait in the early hours of July 19, according to the timestamp shown.

In a statement, the IRGC said it published the footage “to let the world’s opinion know that the allegation is groundless and a sheer lie,” arguing the video contradicts the timeframe presented by Washington and that all Iranian drones returned safely to their bases.
