Sen. John McCain: Donald Trump’s Trip Sends Strong Message to Iran Regime

United States Senator John McCain on Sunday said President Donald Trump’s trip to Saudi Arabia this weekend sent a strong message to Iran’s regime that the U.S. and its allies are ready to block Tehran’s efforts to destabilize the region, the Washington Examiner reported.

“There’s no doubt that if we’re going to impede the Iranian’s continued efforts to exert, certainly, significant strength in the region that this is an important step forward,” the Arizona Republican said on “Fox News Sunday.”

In Saudi Arabia, President Trump blamed the Iranian regime for supporting and aiding “unspeakable crimes” in Syria under its leader Bashar al-Assad.

Near the end of his speech in Riyadh about forging peace, he argued that Iran’s regime had provided Syria with “safe harbor, financial backing and the social standing needed for recruitment [of terrorists]”.

“From Lebanon to Iraq and Yemen, Iran funds, arms and trains terrorists, militias and other extremist groups that spread destruction and chaos across the region,” he continued.

“For decades Iran has fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and terror; it’s a government that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing the destruction of Israel, death to America, and ruin for many leaders and nations in this very room.”
