President Donald Trump warned Iran on Sunday, saying that if the nation had to take additional military action against the United States, it could expect heavy US revenge.
Trump made a comment during an interview with NBC who on Sunday explained in an explanation why he decided not to order any physical military revenge after Iran dropped an American unmanned aircraft claiming to be in its airspace  "It happened, I said," I will not do it. I'll keep it. If they do something else, it will be double, "Trump said. He also said, "I am not seeking war, and if there will be destruction, as you have never seen before."
The president wrote on Friday that he had a limited military strike, "rolled up and loaded" on Thursday, but he canceled it because it would result in about 1
When pushed by what would be a better answer, Trump does not mention the US cyberatta that started against Iran, instead hinted at a new round of sanctions he said would be announced on Monday "We are increasing sanctions, but the answer will always be very strong."
Trump also said he did not believe that Iran wanted an armed conflict. "" I think they want to negotiate, "he said," and I think they want to and my deal is nuclear. "
The United States had a nuclear deal with Iran, which was negotiated under the O but including several other countries including France, the United Kingdom and China, the agreement abolished some sanctions in exchange for Iran's nuclear disintegration, and all supporters of the deal were in line with it until Trump left it in 2018
Since then, the president has said he will negotiate a new deal, but this has not happened and last week Iran announced that it would also stop dealing with the deal by storing uranium bans.
Sunday, Trump describes his vision of a new deal. It would have the same purpose as the deal it left, and it seems to offer the Iranians such an economic benefit. "Here it is," the president said. "You can not have nuclear weapons. And if you want to talk about it, okay. Otherwise, you can live in a ruined economy for a long time. "
Trump said he would have a desire to meet Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader, for talks with" no preconditions. " ] This is something Trump has recommended before. As Alex Ward of Vox writes, "For decades, American leaders usually reject the meeting with the enemy without first imposing strict conditions … Trump does not care about anything.
The president advocates a meeting with opponents like Kim Jong Yang without any preconditions, and soon after he leaves the nuclear deal, Trump said he would talk to Iranian President Hassan Ruhani without any preconditions: "Speaking to other people, especially when you talk about the potential of war, death and hunger … meet. "
Not everyone in the Trump administration shares this opinion, something he admitted on Sunday. It is known that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton are quite furious about Iran. Immediately before being appointed to his current post, Bolton called for a regime change in the country, saying in a speech that "the declared policy of the United States should be to overthrow the mule regime."
He has not signaled that much has changed his position. "Yes, John Bolton is absolutely a hawk," said Trump to Todd. "If he was going to deal with the whole world at the same time, did not he?"
But Trump also wanted to reduce his worries that he might be too much influenced by those in his White House who insist on war by saying: he counts "both sides" – pigeons and hawks – among his advisers.

When the topic of the conversation turned to another adversary – Russia – Trump did nothing to dispel concerns about the interference of Russia in the upcoming presidential elections.Tod asked if the president intends to put the issue with President Vladimir Putin later this week at the G20 summit,
The question came a week after the interview Trump gave to George Stephanopoulos from ABC News in which he said he would accept the information by foreign actors if proposed during its re-election campaign in 2020, and that this information will not be foreign interference.
The following morning he returned his statement to Twitter saying: "Every day I meet and talk to" foreign governments. " Should I immediately call the FBI for these calls and appointments? How funny! I would never trust it again. "
Todd asked Trump whether this statement is an invitation to Putin to intervene in the 2020 elections. Trump said "no," but he did not answer when asked if he would tell Putin not to interfere with other US elections – instead, the president is attacking the media and says, "Chuck, there are so many fake news."
