“They (Iranians) are the number one terrorist state. They’re sending money all over the place — and weapons. And they can’t do that,” Trump told Fox News.
During his campaign the new US President repeatedly described the Nuclear Deal with Iran as the worst agreement ever negotiated, saying, ”I think it was a deal that should of never been negotiated.”
The new administration imposed additional sanctions against Iran last week, for its alleged destabilizing behavior in the region, and a ballistic missile test that is alleged to be in violation of the UN Security Council resolution.
Trump also issued tough warning against Iran: “The deal that was made by the Obama administration. I think it’s a shame that we’ve had a deal like that and that we had to sign a deal like that. And there was no reason to do it. And, if you’re going to do it, have a good deal,” he said, adding, “We gave them $1.7 billion in cash, which is unheard of. We put the money up and we have really nothing to show for it.”
Trump was unclear about the possibility that he would tear up the Iranian nuclear deal. “We’ll see what happens,” he said. “I can say this, they have total disregard for our country.”
