Trump warns Iran: Threats will come back to bite you like nobody has been bitten before
President Trump warned Iran its threats could “come back to bite you like nobody has been bitten before”, after Iran’s president threatened that Tehran will increase its enrichment of uranium to “any amount that we want”, exceeding the maximum allowed by the 2015 nuclear deal.
“Iran has just issued a New Warning. Rouhani says that they will Enrich Uranium to ‘any amount we want’ if there is no new Nuclear Deal.”
“Be careful with the threats, Iran. They can come back to bite you like nobody has been bitten before!” President Trump tweeted in response to Rouhani’s threat.
Iran on Monday announced its low-enriched uranium stockpile had exceeded limits set in the deal, which was designed to prevent Tehran from developing nuclear weapons in exchange for sanctions relief.
The move was a bid to persuade Europe, Russia, and China to follow through on sanctions relief, but the Trump administration responded by saying its “maximum pressure” campaign would remain.
PM Netanyahu said on Monday that Iran is taking a significant step toward nuclear weapons and called on all European countries to uphold their commitment.
“You committed to act the moment Iran violated the nuclear agreement. You committed to imposing the automatic sanctions set out by the Security Council. Then I say to you: Do it. Just do it,” Netanyahu said.
