Rand Paul is interviewed by Neil Cavuto on President Trump's decision to send 1,000 U.S. troops to the Middle East.
"You know, I’m for less troops in the Middle East. I think it’s a mistake to keep ramping things up. One of the things I liked about President Trump is that he said the Iraq War was a mistake. I think an Iran War would be an even bigger mistake than the Iraq War. We lost over 4,000 soldiers there. I don’t think we need to get involved in another war. Iran is really not someone that we depend on for oil. The Middle East, in fact, we don’t depend on for oil anymore. And so, no, I think it’d be a mistake to get involved in another shooting war," Paul said Tuesday.
