White House: President Trump Will Keep Iran “In Check”

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, speaking at a press briefing Friday afternoon, said of earlier announced sanctions against Iran, “President Trump is going to do everything he can to make sure that Iran is stayed in check.”

“I think today’s sanctions really represent a very, very strong stand against the actions that Iran has been taking,” Spicer told reporters.

Spicer then decried the Iran nuclear deal that the Obama administration negotiated with Tehran in 2015. Spicer also left open the possibility of the Trump administration taking further action against the Islamic Republic.

The Trump administration had announced sanctions earlier Friday in response to an Iranian provocations.
