LIVE VIDEO: White House Press Briefing

Reuters reports:

The White House will hold a press briefing Monday afternoon with press secretary Sarah Sanders. The White House on Monday blamed Iranian President Hassan Rouhani for inciting a war of words with President Donald Trump, who warned that verbal threats could escalate into military conflict with the U.S.

Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, echoed Trump’s rhetoric in a statement Monday saying he’s spoken with Trump over the last several days and, “President Trump told me that if Iran does anything at all to the negative, they will pay a price like few countries have ever paid before.”
