President Donald Trump is calling on the United States to take a tougher stance against Iran in the wake of its recent ballistic missile tests.
In an interview published Wednesday on Politico’s “Morning Money” podcast, Trump said Iran is an “existential threat” and said the U.S. needs to take out its military assets in the country and impose new sanctions.
Trump said that he has “no doubt” that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons, and said that if it does it will be a “tremendous, tremendous catastrophe” and would be a major setback for the U.
“This book, this book could never be written.
It is a textbook example of a regime that does not respect the rules of international law.
It cannot be written,” Trump said.”
I am the only one in this world that can tell you, Iran does not have a nuclear weapon.
And they know it.
I don’t have a deal.
They know it.”
Trump said he will speak with Russian President Vladimir Putin “tomorrow.”
The president said that the “good” people in Iran are “getting along with the bad people in the world” and that he wants the country to join the world, and that the U., and not the United Nations, should be the arbiter of what happens.
“If they don’t join the global community, they’re going to get very, very angry,” Trump added.
“And they’re getting very angry because they’re very disappointed in the lack of leadership.
They’re getting a lot of people who are very angry.””
The bad guys are going to be very angry and very disappointed because this will destroy their relationship with the United State,” Trump concluded.
