President Donald Trump has warned Iran against the use of nuclear weapons. A White House statement issued Wednesday said that the recent Iranian actions, including a ballistic missile launch are provocative.

It is also stated that Iran launched an attack against a Saudi naval vessel through Iran-supported Houthi militants. According to the White House, the actions reveal Iran’s destabilizing behavior across the Middle East.

It is believed that Trump’s impulsive reaction has come in response to Iran’s opposition to the Mexican wall that Trump wants to make in order to check the entry of Mexicans into the U.S.

Last week, the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Hassan Rouhani had advised Trump Administration not to build walls between nations.

As Trump is known for his counterpunches, he wasted no time to react with a threat to Iran. According to the White House, the recent ballistic missile launch is in defiance of UN Security Council Resolution 2231.

The Resolution calls upon Iran “not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.”

The White House reports that these are just the latest of a series of incidents in the past six months in which Houthi forces that Iran has trained and armed have struck Emirati and Saudi vessels, and threatened U.S. and allied vessels transiting the Red Sea.

In these and other similar activities, according to the White House statement, Iran continues to threaten U.S. friends and allies in the region.

The statement further indicated that the Obama Administration failed to respond adequately to Tehran’s malign actions—including weapons transfers, support for terrorism, and other violations of international norms.

According to the statement, the Trump Administration condemns such actions by Iran that undermine security, prosperity, and stability throughout and beyond the Middle East and place American lives at risk.

President Trump criticized various agreements reached between Iran and the Obama Administration, as well as the United Nations – as being weak and ineffective.

“Instead of being thankful to the United States for these agreements, Iran is now feeling emboldened. As of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice,” the White House statement said.

    The $150 billion that Iran received as part of the nuclear deal was Iranian money in US banks. Money that was frozen after the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
    Giving it back to Iran was really an effort to rectify the THEFT of Iranian money by the US, along with all the other abuses of Iran in the past, including THE OVERTHROW OF DEMOCRATICALLY-ELECTED MOHAMMAD MOSSADEGH BY THE C.I.A. in 1953.
