The situation between America — or specifically Donald Trump — and Iran has been a troubling one lately. Iran recently shot down an unmanned drone and Donald can’t seem to figure out what he’s going to do about it. Even when answering reporters, he switches back and forth between berating and chastising the country, threatening harsh reparations, to speculating over whether the attack was even intentional.
Donald then revealed on Twitter that he supposedly called off a massive attack against the country just 10 minutes before they pushed the big button — claiming that he asked how many casualties it would cause, and 150 was too much for him.
Now today, when speaking to White House reporters Trump claimed that he is looking forward to the next step in retaliation after “getting praise” for his last-minute decision to cancel the airstrike.
“I come from New York City, we have a lot of Iranians, and they’re great people,” Trump stated to White House pool reporters. “I have friends that are Iranians. They’re very smart, they’re very ambitious and tremendous, high-quality people. I don’t want to kill 150 Iranians…I don’t want to kill 150 of anything or anybody unless it’s absolutely necessary.”
Trump also stated he is looking forward to starting over with Iran, and stamped them with his trademark slogan, “Make Iran great again.”
Per the pool, Trump told reporters “Let’s make Iran great again” outside the White House this morning

This is going to be Trump’s sole accomplishment of his time in office…..completely bastardizing the meaning of the word great.

Wait! Trump really said, “Let’s make Iran great again”? So, now we’re opposed to Iranians having access to health care too?
