Report: Trump mulls expanding US presence in Middle East

The Trump administration is considering sending 14,000 additional troops to the Middle East as well as more military equipment to increase its presence in the region, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.

Unnamed officials said the president es expected to make a decision on the possible new deployment of troops this month.

The decision to send more troops to the region comes amid rising tensions over Iran, particularly after the attacks on Saudi Aramco's oil facilities in September, which Washington believes were orchestrated by Tehran.
