Trump Issues Warning to Iran Over Assassination Plot


What Happened:

  • President Trump took to twitter Monday evening to issue a warning to Iran that any attack or assassination attempt against the US will be met with a counterattack that “will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude.”

  • The tweets are in response to recent intelligence reports that say Tehran is considering an assassination attempt on Lana Marks, the United States’ ambassador to South Africa.

  • US officials have been aware of the threats against the Ambassador since the Spring but say recent reports have generated more cause for concern.

  • Iran has denied the validity of these reports.
