Donald Trump said Iran has been “put on notice” for testing ballistic missiles as his administration turned its focus to a key foreign-policy area the new president vowed to address after taking office.

“Iran has been formally PUT ON NOTICE for firing a ballistic missile.Should have been thankful for the terrible deal the US made with them!” Trump said in a Twitter message Thursday morning. “Iran was on its last legs and ready to collapse until the US came along and gave it a life-line in the form of the Iran Deal: $150 billion,” he said in another tweet.

US National Security Adviser Michael Flynn

US National Security Adviser Michael Flynn said Wednesday that Iran’s actions showed it to be “in defiance” of the UN Security Council resolution passed after a nuclear deal was reached in 2015 between the Islamic Republic and six nations including the US and Russia. Flynn’s warning came a day after US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the Security Council that the missile test on Sunday was “absolutely unacceptable.”
