President Trump responded to Iranian leadership Tuesday morning after the Islamic regime claimed new sanctions placed on senior terrorists in the country, which were issued yesterday, amount to "mental retardation" from Washington D.C.
Iran leadership doesn’t understand the words “nice” or “compassion,” they never have. Sadly, the thing they do understand is Strength and Power, and the USA is by far the most powerful Military Force in the world, with 1.5 Trillion Dollars invested over the last two years alone..— Donald J.

....The wonderful Iranian people are suffering, and for no reason at all. Their leadership spends all of its money on Terror, and little on anything else. The U.S. has not forgotten Iran’s use of IED’s & EFP’s (bombs), which killed 2000 Americans, and wounded many more...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 25, 2019
....Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality. Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 25, 2019
Yesterday President Trump announced additional sanctions from the Oval Office and plans to issue more on Iranian Foreign Minister Javid Zarif later this week.
"We will continue to increase pressure on Tehran,” President Trump said. “Never can Iran have a nuclear weapon.”
Meanwhile, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just wrapped up a visit to Saudi Arabia and the UAE to bolster relationships with allies as Iran continues its aggression. White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner is in Bahrain today presenting a Middle East business plan with a number of Arab countries in attendance.
