While participating in a radio rally on Rush Limbaugh’s popular radio show, President Donald Trump spared no candor when describing the current state of relations between the United States and Iran, saying that the terror-sponsoring country now knows not to mess with the United States under President Trump’s watch.
In a wide ranging rally that at times saw President Trump turn on the Republican establishment and Black Lives Matter almost in the same breath, the conversation eventually steered to foreign policy, prompting President Trump to expound on the differences between the respect his administration receives from foreign governments versus others. After claiming Iran is hoping he loses the November election, President Trump said Iran now understands it will no longer get away with the behavior it did under previous administrations.
“And Iran knows that, and they’ve been put on notice,” said President Trump. “If you f**k around with us, if you do something bad to us,” he added, “We are going to do things to you that have never been done before.”
Bo Snerdly, the producer of the Rush Limbaugh show, discussed the moment on Twitter. “More radio history,” wrote Snerdly, “The President said ‘If they F*** around with us,’ – that was classic.”
“I think Mike beeped it on the radio feed,” added Snerdly.

President Trump also spoke on his disappointment in Republicans and Democrats on the stimulus, Attorney General Bill Barr on investigating the origins of the Russia hoax, and his astonishment at Black Lives Matter receiving mainstream attention. National File reported:
On the Russia hoax, President Trump blasted Barr and Republicans saying “they don’t play the tough game” and the current state of the justice system “is a disgrace.”
“I would like to see a bigger stimulus package than Republicans or Democrats are offering,” said President Trump “I would like to see a bigger package, I would like to see more money going to people.”
“It was not their fault,” said President Trump. “It was not their fault that China sent them the plague.”
When speaking of Black Lives Matter, the president invoked the famous viral footage of activists shouting “Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon,” referring to police officers.
“What is Black Lives Matter? Pigs in a blank fry ’em like bacon,” said President Trump. “It’s a very racist term… It’s a very bad thing for blacks.”
“Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon, who were they referring to? New York police,” said President Trump.
President Trump delivered the unique radio rally with Limbaugh after being confined to the White House due to his positive COVID-19 test result.
