Iran Slams Trump, Trump Responds

If there was any doubt Iran is looking for a fight, one need look no further than recent statements by Iranian leadership.

After being hit with the new sanctions from Donald Trump, Iran leadership stated, “Trump’s desperate administration is destroying the established international mechanisms for maintaining world peace and security.”

Fueling the Fire

The statements made by Iran were purposefully meant to get under the skin of Donald Trump.

In addition to stating this administration is “closing channel of diplomacy forever,” Iranian leadership accused President Trump of suffering from “mental retardation.”

That, of course, is not going to sit well with Trump.

To this point, Trump has gone out of his way to avoid conflict with Iran.

He even tried to justify the attacks against the drone last week as being a rouge operator carrying out orders that were not the will of the upper-level leadership.

While Democrats have tried to put the onus of this conflict on Trump, he has proven throughout the ordeal he does not want to get this country further entrenched in the Middle East.

The Trump Response

Most people expected Donald Trump to respond harshly to the comments, but he once again took the diplomatic route.

While Trump was harsh on Iranian leadership, he took up the case for the Iranian people…

For now, we seem to be safe from another conflict.

That can quickly change, however, if Iran gets more aggressive and decides to attack a manned ship or aircraft.

If that happens, all bets are off and Trump will be forced to react in kind and nobody will be able to criticize him for it.
