There really is a tweet for everything from Donald Trump, and on Monday, after the president had tweeted an all-caps warning to Iran to “be cautious,” Sen. Bernie Sanders decided to converse with this Trump tweet from 2011:
In order to get elected, @BarackObama will start a war with Iran.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 29, 2011
Wow, did Trump ever get that wrong, and Sanders was all over it:
No, Obama improved relations with Iran. Are YOU, President Trump, planning to start a war to get re-elected? https://t.co/MyL5LGaSIv

We’re old enough to remember when everyone was freaking out about Trump starting World War III by tweeting about North Korea, so we’re gonna say no, Trump is not planning to start a war with Iran by tweeting at them. He tweets things.
But we have to agree that Barack Obama improved relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran — pallets of cash will do that.
He improved them so much that they screamed "Death to America" in celebration https://t.co/0Dzhl1NsdJ

Bernie's too busy telling American corporations how to run their businesses to recognize one of the the greatest threats to world peace on the planet.
Tons of cash & the JCPOA path to nukes worked well in your delusional mind.

Obama improved nothing. His nuclear deal was not only not approved by the Senate but it was also just an appeasement policy that brought no positive results. https://t.co/kJ8xFoPqQ9

It's pretty easy to improve relations with terrorists, you just give them pallets of cash and a path to nuclear weapons. Sounds easy, right? https://t.co/AmtpPdJhSX

BRIBING a country that funds terrorism globally is NOT to be applauded Bernard https://t.co/MnKJfyv5U6

He "improved" relations by sending them money to fund their terror.
He bowed to them just like anyone else. He didn't improve anything, just showed what a beta male lacks. https://t.co/Zl5ociTvbr

For a good laugh, check out PolitiFact’s fact-check of Trump’s claim that the Iran deal gave Iran “$1.8 billion in cash — in actual cash carried out in barrels and in boxes from airplanes.”
PolitiFact rated that claim only half-true: “The $1.8 billion is reasonably accurate. The official amount is $1.7 billion. However, there’s no evidence that barrels and boxes were involved.”
There’s no evidence that barrels and boxes were involved!
He improved them with a pallet of money. https://t.co/9GmVT3jk5f
