President Trump doubled-down on recent comments he made regarding the Iranian nuclear agreement Friday; telling reporters Iran will never have nuclear weapons and saying the world can “bank on it.”
The President was fielding questions from journalists alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkal when he was asked whether he had a “Plan B” in dealing with the Islamic Republic’s weapons program.
“Are you prepared to use military force to rein in the nuclear program in Iran?” asked one reporter.
“I don’t talk about whether or not I’d use military force, it’s not appropriate. But I can tell you this: They will not be doing nuclear weapons. Okay?” said the Commander-in-Chief.
“They will not be doing nuclear weapons. You can bank on it,” he added.

IRAN ON EDGE: Tehran TRASHES 'Unqualified' Trump Over Nuclear Deal
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani unloaded on President Trump this week over his opposition to the multinational nuclear pact; slamming the Commander-in-Chief as “unqualified” to make future agreements.
Speaking through state-run television Wednesday, the leader blasted President Trump as he held high-level meetings with French President Emmanuel Macron regarding the Iranian nuclear deal.
“You don’t have any background in politics,” said Rouhani, addressing Trump. “You don’t have any background in law. You don’t have any background on international treaties.”
“How can a tradesman, a merchant, a building constructor, a tower constructor make judgments about international affairs?” he asked.
The Iranian President’s comments come just hours after Macron and Trump pledged to form a “new deal” with Iran despite Rouhani’s insistence there is no “Plan B.”
WORLD ON EDGE: Iran Threatens to ‘LEVEL TEL AVIV’ and KILL NETANYAHU if Israel Attacks
Iranian officials warned the United States and Israel against all acts of aggression against Tehran this week, threatening to “level Tel Aviv to the ground” and kill Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should Israel “move against Iran.”
According to the Jerusalem Post, the Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council, Mohsen Rezaei issued the stark threat while speaking with regional reporters, saying Iran was poised to strike directly at Israel and adding that Netanyahu “will not have any opportunity” to escape the attack.
“If they [Israel] carry out the slightest unwise move against Iran, we will level Tel Aviv to the ground and will not give any opportunity to Netanyahu to flee,” said Rezaei.
“The US and Israeli leaders don’t know Iran and don’t understand the power of resistance and therefore, they continuously face defeat,” he added. “Today, the situation of the US and Israel indicate their fear of the Zionist regime’s collapse and the US decline.”
The Iranian warning comes days after Israel warships destroyed Tehran-supplied anti-aircraft batteries in Syria used in an unprovoked attack against the Israeli Air Force.
