President Trump ‘Talks Tough’ and the Whole World Listens
The “whole world” is listening to President Donald Trump’s tough talk on Iran, and there are many Middle Eastern countries who fully support his decision on sanctions, Rep. Lee Zeldin, (R-NY) said Wednesday.
“They don’t want to see Iran have a nuclear weapon,” Mr. Zeldin said on TV. “When you look at the Iran nuclear deal, and the way it was created . . . we got rolled. We provided up to $150 billion to the Iranians propping up the wrong regime.
Now with more sanctions set to start in November, there are millions of Iranians who want a better direction and a free, stable, and democratic Iran.
“They want to put their country on a better path. I think the whole world is watching and it is also the Iranian people listening.”
Mr. Zeldin also commented about President Trump’s push for NKorea to denuclearize, saying there will be a long “process” before that happens.
“I don’t think anybody expected Kim to show up with all the nuclear warheads and hand it over at the table,” he said. “It was a good first meeting that took place but it was a first meeting and it was one to build upon.”
Economic pressure, combined with a “last option” of a military strike, have been effective.
“Fast forward 1 year: Instead of the president going to the UN needing to talk about Kim Jong Un, ‘little rocket man‘ and defining that military option as real, he is able to apply the pressure that has been put in place in the past,” Mr. Zeldin said.
More Tough Talk
Last week when Arab separatists attacked a military parade in southwestern Iran, President Donald Trump’s lawyer mounted a stage in New York to declare that the government would be toppled.
“I don’t know when we’re going to overthrow them. It could be in a few days, months or a couple of years, but it’s going to happen,” former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said last Saturday. “They are going to be overthrown. The people of Iran obviously have had enough.”
