U.S. President Donald Trump warned on Monday Iran would “suffer greatly” if it targeted U.S. interests once Washington deployed AN warship and a lot of jet fighters at a time of rising tensions with Tehran.
“We’ll see what happens with Iran. If they are doing something, it’ll be a really unhealthy mistake,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “If they are doing something they’ll suffer greatly.”
Washington withdrew last year from a 2015 accord between Iran and world powers aimed toward reining in Tehran’s nuclear plans. Since then, the u. s. has ratcheted up sanctions on Iran, speech it needed to cut back its oil exports to zero.
