The official said Trump made the request during a meeting last Thursday with his top national security aides, including Vice President Mike Pence, Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, and General Mark Mille, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

official said: “Ask for options, give him scenarios, and ultimately decide not to move forward.”

Trump, who took office in early 2017, has pursued a policy of “extreme pressure” on Iran, particularly since his decision to unilaterally withdraw from the 2018 nuclear deal and reimpose harsh economic sanctions on it.
