The government has established a link between Al Qaeda and Iran to claim that the Islamic nation is a terrorist threat to the United States.
It is an argument that would allow the president to fight Iran without approval from Congress under a resolution of the use of 2001 forces, which gives Trump the authority to use force to combat future international terrorist actions against the United States prevent & # 39 ;, NBC News reported.
Iran did not attack the United States during the September 11 attacks, but the government accused the country of assisting al-Qaeda and being associated with a terrorist threat against the US embassy in Baghdad.
Earlier on Monday, Trump slammed reports that he was talking to Iran and boasting how the economy of the country was collapsing as he undertook his fight with the Islamic nation.
& # 39; The Fake News made a typically false statement, without any knowledge that the United States was trying to set up a negotiation with Iran. This is a fake message, & the president wrote on Twitter.
& # 39; Iran will call us if and when they are ever ready. Meanwhile, their economy continues to collapse – very sad for the Iranian people!, He added.

Tensions between the two countries have increased enormously now that Washington has sent warships and bombers to the Persian Gulf, while Tehran reportedly resumed higher uranium enrichment.
The escalation comes a year after President Trump withdrew from the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement.
Moreover, the leaders of the two countries have ended up in a two-string battle.
On the weekend, Trump issued a threat to the Muslim nation, wrote on Twitter: & # 39; If Iran wants to fight, it will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again! & # 39;
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif struck back and claimed that Trump & # 39; stimulated & # 39; was in & # 39; genocidal taunts & # 39 ;. Zarif named both Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan as two historical leaders that the region survived.

He wrote: & # 39; @realdonaldTrump hopes to achieve what Alexander, Genghis and other aggressors have not done. Iranians have stood for millennia while aggressors have all disappeared. #EconomicTerrorism & genocidal taunts will not end & # 39; Iran & # 39 ;. #NeverThreatenAnIranian. Try respect – it works! & # 39;
In an interview with Fox News that was broadcast on Sunday, Trump said he was reluctant to start a war, but said that he could not let Iran have nuclear weapons & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I will not let Iran have nuclear weapons & # 39 ;, he noted.
& # 39; I don't want to fight. But you do have situations like Iran, you can't let them have nuclear weapons – you just can't let it happen, & he said.
& # 39; With everything that is going on, and I am not someone who believes – you know, I am not someone who wants to wage war because war hurts economies, and war kills the most important thing – by far the most important, & # 39 ; he said.

He also commented: & I ended the nuclear deal with Iran, and actually I have to tell you – I had no idea it would be as strong as it was. It is completely – the country has been destroyed from the standpoint of the economy. & # 39;
Earlier this month, Trump said he would like Iran to be called, which some say was an indication that the US was open to negotiations with Tehran.
& # 39; What I would like to see with Iran, I would like them to call me, & # 39; Trump said at the time.
& # 39; What they should do is call me, sit down, & # 39; the president remarked. & # 39; We can close a deal, a fair deal. & # 39;
Last week the president met Swiss president Ueli Maurer, whose country has facilitated communication between Washington D.C. and Tehran since they broke diplomatic ties in 1979.
