Trump: Iran is playing with fire. I won’t be as nice as Obama
President Donald Trump warned Friday morning that Iran was "playing with fire" as his administration reportedly considers new sanctions after Iran test-fired a ballistic missile last week.
“They don't appreciate how 'kind' President Obama was to them. Not me!," Trump tweeted. Trump's national security adviser, Michael Flynn this week criticized Iran for its "destabilizing activity" and officially put the Islamic Republic “on notice.”
A top adviser to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei replied Thursday that Iran will not yield to "useless" US threats from "an inexperienced person.”
New US sanctions could target more than two dozen Iran entities.
