Donald Trump arrived in Tampa, Florida this morning for a briefing at the U.S. military headquarters that oversees all operations in the Middle East.
Daily Mail reported that Trump is currently at MacDill AirForce Base, home to the United States Central Command, CENTCOM, and the United States Special Operations Command, USSOCOM. There, he will be given a command briefing and have lunch with the enlisted troops.
Trump will also deliver an address to service personnel at MacDill today. He is being accompanied on this trip by by Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Joseph Dunford and the White House’s National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.
This comes after a week of heated exchanges between the U.S. and Iran as Trump continues to defend his travel ban.
“Iran is playing with fire – they don’t appreciate how ‘kind’ President Obama was to them. Not me!” Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday. He later told reporters that Iran is “not behaving.”
“Iran is unmoved by threats as we derive security from our people,” Iran’s foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif responded. “We will never use our weapons against anyone, except in self-defense. Let us see if any of those who complain can make the same statement.”
