US President Donald Trump tweeted his response to the latest developments with Iran and related to the previous president and the deal with Iran.

"President Obama made a desperate and terrible deal with Iran," Trump tweeted. "Gave them 150 billion dollars plus I.8 billion dollars in CASH! Iran was in big trouble and he bailed them out. Gave them a free path to nuclear weapons, and SOON. Instead of saying thank you, Iran yelled: Death to America."

"I terminated deal, which was not even ratified by Congress, and imposed strong sanctions," Trump continued. "They are a much weakened nation today than at the beginning of my Presidency, when they were causing major problems throughout the Middle East. Now they are bust!"

Regarding the incident in which Iran shot down an American surveillance drone, Trump noted: "On Monday they shot down an unmanned drone flying in International Waters. We were cocked and loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, 'how many will die?' '150 people, sir,' was the answer from a general. 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, [it was] not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone."

"I am in no hurry," the US President concluded, "our military is rebuilt, new, and ready to go, by far the best in the world. Sanctions are biting and more [were] added last night. Iran can NEVER have nuclear weapons, not against the USA, and not against the WORLD!"
