Remember when Obama was president and he used to talk tough about those who betrayed or threatened the United States, but never took action? Well, those days are officially done.
World, take notice. President Donald Trump doesn’t make empty threats. When his admin announced that they’d put Iran “on notice” earlier this week in response to the ballistic missile tests that violated an agreement, they weren’t lying.
Iran is playing with fire – they don't appreciate how "kind" President Obama was to them. Not me!

BBC has the story:
The Trump administration is imposing sanctions on Iran following its recent ballistic missile test.
The US Treasury Department announced the measures against 13 people and a dozen companies on Friday.
President Donald Trump tweeted earlier: “Iran is playing with fire – they don’t appreciate how ‘kind’ President Obama was to them. Not me!”
But Iran has said it will not yield to “useless” American threats from “an inexperienced person”.
Some of the newly sanctioned groups are based in the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon and China.
The measures come a day after President Trump said “nothing is off the table” in dealing with Iran.
And this week, the White House national security adviser, Michael Flynn, the administration was putting Iran “on notice” for its missile test.
There’s a new sheriff in town, and he’s already made it quite clear that he’s not going to pussy-foot around like Obama once did. America will once again be feared, and great again.
