Donald Trump Just Issued a Threat Against Iran If They Resume Their Nuclear Weapons Program

President Donald Trump issued a stern warning to Iran on Wednesday, just one day after announcing the United States' withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal that was implemented by President Barack Obama in 2015.


Trump warned Iran not to restart their nuclear weapons program, something which Iran has reportedly considered doing in response to the reimposed sanctions Trump announced on Tuesday. Speaking to reporters after Wednesday's cabinet meeting, the president said:

I would advise Iran not to start their nuclear program. I would advise them very strongly. If they do there will be very severe consequence.

Trump added that Iran's influence in the Middle East makes them a particularly dangerous player on the world stage.

With all of the places they’re involved, it’s bedlam and death and we can’t allow that to happen. They’ve gotta understand life. ‘Cause I don’t think they do understand life.'

Iran has stated it intends to remain in the agreement, in which England, France, Russia, China, and the European are all participants. What remains to be seen, however, is how Iran will respond to American provocations. On Tuesday, videos emerged of members of Iranian Parliament burning pictures of the American flag and chanting, "death to America."

It should be noted that the IAEA, American intelligence, and the Irani government have all confirmed that Iran has remained compliant to the agreement, which Trump falsely claimed was not the case during his withdrawal announcement.

Allies of the United States have lamented Trump's decision to pull out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, too. German, French, and English leaders issued a scathing rebuke of Trump following his announcement.

Together, we emphasize our continuing commitment to the JCPOA. This agreement remains important for our shared security.

Former President Barack Obama also issued a response, outlining his disappointment and opining that leaving the agreement is a huge mistake.

The reality is clear. The JCPOA is working – that is a view shared by our European allies, independent experts, and the current U.S. Secretary of Defense.

In December, President Donald Trump established the United States Space Force, a sixth branch of the United States Army.

The goal of the force is to protect United States assets in outer space from foreign rivals and is slated to cost around $2 billion in the next five years.

Today, Trump unveiled the official logo for the Space Force, but people think it bears a striking resemblance to another iconic symbol.

People were stunned this past July when President Donald Trump tweeted that four Congresswomen of color—Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)—should "go back" to where they came from.

He also falsely claimed they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe..."

Three of the Congresswomen were born in the United States. Omar was a refugee from Somalia. All are Americans.

At a campaign rally days later in North Carolina, President Donald Trump mentioned Congresswoman Omar—and got a strong reaction from the crowd.

While bigotry is common at a Trump rally, it became even more blatant when Trump's supporters began chanting "Send her back," echoing the calls from Trump's tweet for them to "go back" to where they came from.

As Democratic House impeachment managers make their case against President Donald Trump, one of his favorite news networks is going to lengths to keep the bevy of evidence against him from reaching their viewers' ears.

At first, Fox News tried scrolling Trump's so-called accomplishments alongside live video of the historic proceedings. Now, the network's latest attempt to distract from the Democrats' arguments is raising eyebrows even higher.

Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman was one of the first witnesses in the House of Representatives' initial impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Vindman testified before the House's select committee on impeachment late last year after hearing Trump's infamous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The administration of President Donald Trump relies on its white Evangelical base to keep its support consistently hovering around 40 percent.

In keeping with this, President Donald Trump often invokes anti-abortion values he claims to hold dear. He's falsely claimed that Democrats are determined to rip babies from their mothers' wombs and that parents often discuss with their doctors whether or not to keep the baby...after the baby is born.

These claims are patently false, but they rile up the base.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos seems to be playing right along in promoting abortion hysteria, if a recent speech is any indication.

After hours of evidence presented by the House Impeachment managers in the Senate trial against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) strayed even further into the abyss of fanaticism as he defended the President to reporters.

Graham, a Trump critic turned ally, didn't attempt to refute any of the myriad evidence laid out by Democrats, but instead dismissed the claims that Trump did anything wrong when he withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.
