President Donald Trump dismissed reports that the White House is reviewing a plan to send 120,000 U.S. troops to the Middle East if Iran attacks American forces. Trump was responding to reporters' questions May 14 before making a trip to a liquified natural gas plant in Louisiana.

Trump also said he thought it was a "great thing" that Attorney General William Barr was looking into how the special counsel's Russia investigation began. Trump declined to answer whether he still had confidence in FBI Director Christopher Wray, who during a congressional hearing broke with Barr's assessment that there may have been "spying" on the Trump campaign in 2016.
