Trump: If Iran Threatens America, They 'Will Pay a Price Like Few Countries Have Ever Paid'
President Trump had strong words for Iran Tuesday after meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, who sought to convince Trump that the 2015 nuclear agreement is worth preserving.
"If Iran threatens us in any way, they will pay a price like no country has ever paid," said Trump. He stated earlier that if Iran restarts their nuclear program, "they will have bigger problems than they have ever had before."
Macron called for "building something new that will cover all concerns," rather than "tearing apart" the deal.
Trump is expected to make a decision by May 12 on whether to re-certify the deal, which was one of the Obama administration's signature foreign policy achievements.
"We'll see what happens on the 12th," said Trump, adding he also blames Congress for the "terrible" agreement being made.
“Iran seems to be behind everything where there is a problem. You look at what’s happening, in any—virtually any place in the Middle East, and Iran is behind it," said Trump.
Responding on "Outnumbered Overtime," Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) said he and many others in Congress were always opposed to the deal, criticizing Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) for an agreement with Democrats that allowed it to go through.
"Trump is acting to restore America's credibility abroad," he said, praising the president for being "willing to act and buck conventional wisdom."
