Pres Donald Trump made a chilling statement recently, doing something that very few, if any, presidents have done publicly before.
Trump appeared on ally Rush Limbaugh’s program as part of a campaign “radio rally’. The president featured for two hours of Limbaugh’s show.
As the president took aim at Iran then blasted away. He warned the rogue nation of severe consequences if they play any games with the United States.
“If you f–k around with us, if you do something bad to us, we are gonna do things to you that have never been done before.”

Trump announced the U.S. had pulled out of a nuclear pact with Iran in May of 2019. Just last month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo set into motion snapback sanctions from the deal.
A former Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action passed through Congress and was later signed by ex-Pres. Barack Obama in spring, 2015.
Trump’s comment could land Limbaugh in hot water with the Federal Communications Commission. The U.S. regulatory body charged with overseeing communications across all media avenues in this country.
Limbaugh and Trump have a close connection. They are sometimes seen on the links playing golf together. Trump also awarded him the presidential medal of freedom at this year’s State of the Union address.
Fox News reported:
Limbaugh had missed several shows this week to undergo treatment but returned for his Friday chat with Trump.
“The Rush Limbaugh Show” first aired in 1988 and has earned a variety of awards and honors. Limbaugh is a five-time winner of the National Association of Broadcasters’ Marconi Award for “Excellence in Syndicated and Network Broadcasting,” a No. 1 New York Times bestselling author and a member of the Radio Hall of Fame and National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
The right wing radio king has been battling lung cancer for some time. Limbaugh was even hospitalized in September taking a brief hiatus from the booth but he is now back on air.
