WASHINGTON (AP) — After two weeks of mixed signals on Iran, from high-profile U.S. military moves to administration assertions that it’s not angling for war, President Donald Trump said Friday that even the Iranians may be confused about what comes next.

“With all of the Fake and Made Up News out there,” Trump wrote on Twitter, “Iran can have no idea what is actually going on.”

Trump said on Thursday he hoped the U.S. was not on a path to war with Iran, but some wonder if his two most hawkish advisers could be angling for such a confrontation. A day earlier he expressed a desire for dialogue, tweeting, “I’m sure that Iran will want to talk soon.” But Tehran has showed no outward sign of preparing to talk.
