During Obama’s eight-year reign as President, America was the laughing stock of the world.
But President Trump is turning that around by finally being a leader who is unapologetic about putting his country first.
And Obama was furious after Trump announced one bold move proving that.
The best example showcasing the difference between Obama and Trump is their dealings with Iran.
President Trump is willing to fairly communicate with the rogue nation, but absolutely will not give in to their demands.
What Iran wants more than anything is a nuclear weapon that they can use to wipe Israel off the map.
That is unacceptable to Trump and is something he will vigorously fight.
He is proving that every single day.
But former President Obama was the exact opposite and did everything in his power to appease Iran, which is the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world.
Obama even signed the Iran Nuclear Deal that hands Iran boatloads of money to essentially bribe them not to build a nuclear weapon.
But President Trump pulled out of the deal after evidence was presented showing that Iran was not following through on their side of the deal.
And since that day, Iran has been escalating tensions with the United States, eventually resulting in a U.S. drone being shot down.
In response to the attack, despite the military being ready to attack, Trump called the attack off and is instead introducing a series of economic sanctions as punishment.
He signed the order announcing the sanctions this week in an oval office signing ceremony.
“We do not seek conflict with Iran or any other country,” Trump said to reporters in the Oval Office at the ceremony. “I can only tell you we cannot ever let Iran have a nuclear weapon.”
“I think a lot of restraint has been shown by us, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to show it in the future,” Trump said.
Needless to say, Iran was furious about the sanctions, replying with a claim that the White House is “afflicted by mental retardation.”
Trump took to Twitter to respond to Iran’s insult.
“Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality,” Trump said in a late morning tweet. “Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No More John Kerry & Obama!”
Trump is making it clear that America no longer has weak leaders.
With Obama in office, countries like Iran knew they could walk all over the United States with no consequences.
Trump is changing that and finding great success.
While he is willing to threaten force to support America’s interests, he is also willing to work with countries that nobody else was willing to.
He has held a series of very successful summits with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, bringing the isolated country closer to peace than ever before.
Do you think Trump is doing a good job overseas?
