The White House press secretary said the US president is looking at all of “the bad behavior of Iran” including their support of terrorism.
Trump To Unveil New Response Plan To Iran’s Missile Test
The US President Donald Trump will soon announce America’s response to Iran’s missile tests, to their support of terrorism and cyber operations as part of his new Iran strategy, Reuters reported.
“The president isn’t looking at one piece of this. He’s looking at all of the bad behavior of Iran,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, told reporters.
“Not just the nuclear deal as bad behavior, but the ballistic missile testing, destabilizing of the region, number one state sponsor of terrorism, cyber attacks, illicit nuclear program,” Sanders continued.
Reuters reported that Trump “wants to look for a broad strategy that addresses all of those problems, not just one-offing those,” she said.
“That’s what his team is focused on and that’s what he’ll be rolling out to address that as a whole in the coming days.”
A senior administration official told Reuters on Thursday that Trump was expected to decertify the landmark international deal curbing Iran’s nuclear program, in a step that could cause the accord to unravel.
Trump on Friday declined to explain what he meant when he described a gathering of military leaders the evening before as “the calm before the storm,” but the White House said his remarks were not meant to be mischievous, stated Reuters.
The administration was considering October 12 for Trump to give a speech on Iran, but no final decision had been made, an official said previously.
