President Trump issued a stern warning to Iran during his meeting with Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban Monday. He told the Ayatollah regime to not take irresponsible steps in its foreign policies or threaten the U.S. and its allies. The president also left all options on the table in dealing with Iran.

“We’ll see what happens with Iran, if they do anything it will be a very bad mistake if they do anything,” stated President Trump. “It’s going to be a bad problem for Iran if something happens, I can tell you that, they’re not going to be happy…you can figure it out yourself, they know what I mean by it.”

This comes after the U.S. Air Force flew its nuclear capable B-52 bombers over the Persian Gulf over the weekend in a warning to Iran.

The president’s remarks come after the United Arab Emirates said four commercial vessels had possibly been sabotaged by Iranian operatives. Tehran has denied its involvement with the incident.
