       Trump:Military action against Iran still on table
 
 
Now the latest on the ongoing tensions between Washington and Tehran.
U.S. President Donald Trump says that the United States is about to impose major additional sanctions against Iran on Monday, while adding that military action is still on the table. 
 
Trump tweeted on Saturday that "We are putting major additional Sanctions on Iran on Monday."
Earlier in the day, Trump told reporters that additional sanctions would be moving forward against Iran, with some being implemented "slowly" and some "more rapidly."
Asked if military action is still on the table, Trump said that "it's always on the table until we get this solved."
In response, Iran military warned the U.S. against the mistake of taking military actions on Iran, saying any attack would draw Tehran's "crushing response and cost the U.S. dearly." 
Trump on Friday confirmed that he authorized the military strikes against Iran in retaliation for downing a U.S. military drone but called off the operations 10 minutes before they were to be implemented.
