White House escalates warning to Iran, says all options on table
The Trump administration is considering a range of options to counter Iran’s aggressive activity in the Middle East, said a senior official who would not rule out military action.
The official said that all options are under consideration, including financial and economic.
“Iran is fully aware of what they are doing,” the official said. “We are going to respond appropriately.”
Earlier, National Security Adviser Michael Flynn said the White House was “officially putting Iran on notice.”
Rather that delivering a warning through the State Department, it came from the White House to underscore the importance placed upon the issue by President Trump.
