CNN- President Donald Trump posted to Twitter, saying the US will be putting a new round of major sanctions on Iran starting Monday next week.
The move comes after Iran shot down a US Military drone on Thursday. President Trump later called off a US airstrike, saying he was concerned about casualties.
Although sanctions will be put in place, President Trump also tweeted that he looks forward to the sanctions coming off someday, and Iran becoming prosperous again. Earlier Saturday morning, the president said he believed new sanctions would push Tehran to re-negotiate its nuclear program.
