Some people are saying that Trump’s declaration is a veiled threat to Iran, but they are wrong. It is a promise to the American people after eight years of appeasement by the Obama regime that allowed red lines to be crossed and chemical weapons to be used against unarmed citizens in Syria. President Trump is well aware of the dangers Iran as a nuclear power would present. It is unlikely that any country would openly use a nuclear weapon, especially Iran. But the real danger is that they could supply weapons to some of the many terrorists they support to fight a proxy war.
The ironic thing is that European countries are opposed to dropping the Iran deal which allows Iran to acquire nukes at the end of the deal. But, it would be tough to smuggle such a device into the United States, but Europe with their open borders would be easily breached. Paris, Berlin or some other European capital would likely be a prime target. Even if they attack US interests abroad, the host counties could suffer devastating effects of a nuclear weapon, even a low yield one.
On Tuesday President Trump announced the US will not allow a regime that chants “Death to America” to gain access to nuclear weapons.
In a few moments, I will sign a presidential memorandum to begin reinstating U.S. nuclear sanctions on the Iranian regime. We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanction. Any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons could also be strongly sanctioned by the United States.
America will not be held hostage to nuclear blackmail. We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction. And we will not allow a regime that chants “Death to America” to gain access to the most deadly weapons on Earth.
Americans know that President Trump keeps his promises. Iran would be wise to understand that too.
