Iran was on the verge of collapse until the U.S. gave it a "lifeline" in the form of the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers, President Trump said Thursday.
"Iran has been formally PUT ON NOTICE for firing a ballistic missile," Trump tweeted. "Should have been thankful for the terrible deal the U.S. made with them!"
Trump was repeating comments made a day earlier by national security advisor Michael Flynn,
Trump also tweeted, "Iran was on its last legs and ready to collapse until the U.S. came along and gave it a life-line in the form of the Iran Deal: $150 billion."
Flynn said Wednesday that the "Obama administration failed to respond adequately to Tehran's malign actions" and put Iran "on notice," without elaborating on what actions may be taken.
