President Trump recently made the historic decision to pull America out of the controversial Iran Deal enacted by his predecessor.
The agreement was a keystone accomplishment of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy. Trump has been deeply critical of the deal, promising multiple times on the campaign trail to negotiate a better deal or get the U.S. out of the current one.
Trump called the deal “a horrible deal that should never, ever have been made,” yesterday in a speech from the White House before signing a presidential memorandum to officially exit the U.S. from the agreement and reinstate blistering sanctions on the Iranian regime.
At a cabinet meeting Wednesday, a reporter asked Trump, “What will you do if Iran starts up their nuclear program again?”
President Trump paused for a moment and said ominously, “Iran will find out.”
When pressed again by the reporter, Trump said, “I would advise Iran not to start their nuclear program. I would advise them very strongly.”
“If they do,” he continued, “there will be very severe consequence. Okay? Thank you very much.”
