After days of Iran harassing U.S. Navy ships in the Persian Gulf, President Donald Trump has decided to jump in and fix the situation.
President Trump has just ordered the United States Navy to “DESTROY” any Iran ships that harass them in the open seas, according to a special report by Fox News.
Peace Through Strength
“I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea,” Trump tweeted.

Trump issued this command in response to the the recent encounter that happened last week when 6 U.S. Navy warships were conducting drills when they were repeatedly harassed by 11 Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Navy vessels, the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet reported.
We wrote our own special report about the incident a few days ago as well.
The Navy said that the Iranian’s dangerous and provocative actions “increased the risk of miscalculation and collision” and were in violation of international maritime “rules of the road.” The Navy also said they were not in accordance with international law to act safely with other vessels in the area.
The best way to end these acts of abuse by Iran is to hit back harder than they do. And President Donald Trump understands this.
In the middle of the economic slowdown and Coronavirus outbreak, the last thing America needs is another threat. And that’s why it’s so important to put an end to the attacks before they get worse.
If Iran really is spoiling for a fight, then we’ll give it to them. But by no means shall America accept the abuse from them any longer.
This is exactly why we elected Donald Trump in 2016. To keep the peace.
