Barack Obama spent eight years appeasing the Islamist government in Iran.
The American people sent Donald Trump to the White House to correct Obama’s anti-American policies that advanced the interests of the nation’s enemies.
And in one tweet Trump let Iran know everything was different.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani spoke in front of a group of Iranian diplomats and bellowed that Iran would wage the “mother of all wars” against the United States.
Barack Obama may have been willing to sit back and let adversaries walk all over the United States, but Rouhani’s threat did not sit well with Donald Trump.
President Trump fired off an all caps tweet warning Rouhani that he risked consequences of historic proportions if Iran continued to threaten the United States.
“Mr. Trump, don’t play with the lion’s tail, this would only lead to regret,” he said, warning that “war with Iran is the mother of all wars.”
Rouhani made his remarks in response to reports that the Trump administration was trying to disrupt the current government in Iran.
To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!

MSNBC’s former Republican morning show host and premier Never Trumper Joe Scarborough mocked the President’s tweet saying he, “went full Trump. He should never go full Trump, but he went full Trump.”
Yet those same critics thought Trump’s tough rhetoric would lead to war with North Korea, and instead it led to historic denuclearization and peace talks with Kim Jong Un.
Do you believe Donald Trump will handle Iran more successfully than Barack Obama?
