It seems like all the peace deals happening in the Middle East fired up Iran.
Reports came out recently that Iran is seeking vengeance on the U.S. after the U.S. issued an airstrike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani earlier this year.
Trump released details that Iran is considering an assassination attempt on U.S. Ambassador Lana Marks.
Trump responded quickly on Twitter to Iran’s threats and is quoted saying “Any attack by Iran, in any form, against the United States will be met with an attack on Iran that will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude!”
…caused over so many years. Any attack by Iran, in any form, against the United States will be met with an attack on Iran that will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude!

The warning to Iran was covered by Fox News see what they had to say:
President Trump took to Twitter late Monday to issue a stern warning to Iran that an assassination attempt or attack against the U.S. in retaliation of the airstrike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani earlier this year will be met with a counterattack that “will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude.”
Trump cited recent reports that claim Tehran is considering an assassination attempt on Lana Marks, the United States’ ambassador to South Africa. U.S. officials have been aware of threats against the ambassador since the spring, but intelligence suggests those threats have become more specific in recent weeks.

CBS46 chipped in too:
Monday evening the President of the United States took to Twitter to inform the public of a possible attack from Iran.
On his personal account, Donald Trump tweeted, “According to press reports, Iran may be planning an assassination, or other attack, against the United States in retaliation for the killing of terrorist leader Soleimani, which was carried out for his planning a future attack, murdering U.S. Troops, and the death & suffering…caused over so many years.
Any attack by Iran, in any form, against the United States will be met with an attack on Iran that will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude!”
On January 2 of this year, U.S. Troops used an air strike to kill the leader of Iranian Forces, Qassim Suleimani.
Iran hasn’t been quiet this week, they recently executed notable Iranian wrestler Navid Afkari.
Trump asked for the execution to stop but Iran ignored Trump’s plea and went through with the execution.
Iran has been acting up lately but I know one thing for sure they better not test our President or they will have to pay.
