President Trump sent a warning to Iran on Friday with a strong message against the Anti-American regime in this country. Iran was unjustly holding an American hostage.
This is not their first time to show aggressive arrogance against the USA. This time, Iranians hold Xiyue Wang, a Chinese-born American citizen who visited Iran in 2016 due to his scholarly research on Iranian history. Xiyue Wang was working on a Ph.D for Princeton University and he was an excellent student who was expected to bring a great research on Iranian history as part of his scientific work.
However, he NEVER succeeded. Xiyue Wang was convicted of spying for the US government and, of course, he was sentenced e to 10 years in no time, in Iranian top-security prison.
The White House came up with an official statement:
“The United States condemns hostage takers and nations that continue to take hostages and detain our citizens without just cause or due process. For nearly forty years, Iran has used detentions and hostage taking as a tool of state policy, a practice that continues to this day with the recent sentencing of Xiyue Wang to ten years in prison.”
President Trump is disappointed, but not surprised. He said that he will fight for EVERY American captive all around the world. He said that Iran will face “NEW AND SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES” if Iran did not release the captives. (Trump refers also to Robert Levinson, and the Namazi family, all accused of espionage)
Now we have to wait and see what the Iranians are going to do. The tyrants have to leave our people free. They are unjustly held in foreign prison for so long.
The leaders of this country and the Persian nation should look forward to building good relations with the USA, not provoking war.
Obama ruined our reputation in the Middle East and he made an awful deal with Iran. However, they have to know that Donald Trump is something way DIFFERENT than Obama and he is not going to let them play their dirty little game.
