Neither Iran, nor any other hostile actor should mistake US prudence and discretion for weakness. No one has granted them a hunting licence in the Middle East. As President Trump said on Friday, our military is rebuilt, new, and ready to go. By far the best in the world. Sanctions are biting, and more added last night.
Iran can never have nuclear weapons, not against the USA, and not against the world. And as he made clear yesterday, referring to his earlier remarks, the president said 'I just stopped the strike from going forward at this time.' We expect that the new sanctions President Trump referred to, in preparation for some weeks, will be announced publicly on Monday.
