Iran Is NOT Off The Hook – Trump Punches HARD With This Latest Announcement

Share this story:

On Saturday, President Trump announced that the White House is preparing an additional set of “major’ sanctions against Iran.

He tweeted:

“Iran cannot have Nuclear Weapons! Under the terrible Obama plan, they would have been on their way to Nuclear in a short number of years, and existing verification is not acceptable. We are putting major additional Sanctions on Iran on Monday. I look forward to the day that sanctions come off Iran, and they become a productive and prosperous nation again – The sooner the better!”

As he was leaving for Camp David earlier in the day, the President toldreporters sanctions will come fast and slow:

“They’re going on slowly and in some cases pretty rapidly.”

And what’s he gonna be doin’ at Camp David? More Iran:

As covered by RedState’s Elizabeth Vaughn, Iran shot down a U.S. drone over the Strait of Hormuz Thursday. A dispute arose over whether the spy plane was in Iranian airspace.

The incident heightened tensions (see here and here), of course, and The Donald tweeted that the U.S. was “cocked & loaded.”

He changed his mind, though, noting that 150 people would have died.

Bill Maher decided to correct POTUS:

Bill’s wrong, though — you can absolutely simultaneously be loaded and cocked.

Back to Trump: He affirmed Saturday, “We want to be proportionate.”

But military action is still an option:

“It’s always on the table until we get this solved. We have a tremendously powerful military force in that area.”
