USA: Trump says Iran is 'playing with fire' with uranium enrichment

United States, Washington DC
July 2, 2019 at 00:35 GMT -00:00 · Published

US President Donald Trump said Iran was ‘playing with fire’ when commenting on Tehran's announcement on Monday of exceeding the uranium stockpile limit set by the 2015 nuclear deal. The statement came as Trump was speaking to the press at the White House in Washington DC, on Monday.

"No, no message to Iran. They know what they're doing. They know what they're playing with and I think they're playing with fire. So no message to Iran whatsoever."

Tehran's claims were later confirmed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which monitors Iran's nuclear programme under the deal. The move was the first major step taken in breach of the nuclear agreement since the US pulled out in 2018.

Trump also confirmed he and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed the possibility of a trade deal at G20 in Osaka.

"I expect him (Xi Jinping) to move and if he doesn't move that's okay too. I'm very happy either way, but I think we have a good chance of making a deal. I think they want to make a deal because they are losing many companies that are leaving because of the tariffs, because they don't want to pay the tariffs, so they are losing many companies, they're moving to Vietnam, and by the way, some are moving back to the United States where they belong."

He also praised the Border Patrol agents' job at the US Southern border, saying that opening the borders would increase crime.

"If you look, there was a report that came out where approximately 600 people in the last caravan were serious criminals. I don't want them in our country. So the Border Patrol they're patriots, they are great people, they love our country. They know what's coming in."
