Iran just made a big mistake…
In the wide-ranging interview, he warned Iran over attacks on tankers in the Gulf of Oman that the U.S. blames directly on Tehran, saying, “We don’t take it lightly.”
“Iran did do it and you know they did it because you saw the boat,” he said.
Trump said the mine had “Iran written all over it.”
“They’re a nation of terror and they’ve changed a lot since I’ve been president, I can tell you.”
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the Iranians had launched a “blatant assault” on tankers.
Pompeo said that Iran was working to disrupt the flow of oil and this is a deliberate part of a campaign to escalate tension.
The tensions are the latest since the U.S. announcement of its withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
