The uptick in attacks both by and against our allies in the Middle East has created concern for Iran’s nuclear program moving forward.
President Trump, however, tried to put everyone’s mind at ease, saying “there will be very severe consequences” if Iran tries to create nuclear weapons.
Even before Trump took office and knew the full details of the Iran nuclear deal, he did not like it one bit.
After taking over office and getting access to the documentation, he called it “a horrible deal that should never, ever have been made.”
The Obama administration came under considerable fire when the agreement was put into place.
Then-President Obama circumvented the process to help strengthen his legacy, but it completely backfired on him.
Most Americans can still see that horrible image of our tax dollars stacked up and being shipped over to Iran for what was more or less a ransom payment.
Not on My Watch
While running for president, Donald Trump was adamant he wanted that nuclear deal killed.
He said then, and he says now, the only people that benefited from that deal were the Iranians.
While Democrats have tried to sell Americans on its benefits, they have had a hard time trying to prove the balancing of the deal to the American people.
True to his words, President Trump killed the deal this week, much to the chagrin of liberals and Obama supporters.
One concern, though, was the obvious need to ensure Iran does not move forward with any nuclear weapons development.
It is worth noting, though, there have been more than a few rumors Iran was actually working on a nuclear weapon, even before Trump killed the deal.
When asked about that very subject, Trump stated, “I would advise Iran not to start their nuclear program. I would advise them very strongly.”
He added, “If they do, there will be very severe consequences. Okay? Thank you very much.”
Trump has already proven he is a man of his word.
That being said, Iran would be wise to heed his warning, or they may find their country nothing more than a footnote in history books.
