President Donald Trump began one of his patented Sunday morning tweetstorms saying he has "never gotten over" former President Barack Obama's $1.7 billion cash payment to Iran to curb their nuclear weapons development, which drew no investigation in Congress, the FBI or the Department of Justice.

The tweet came amid Sunday's news Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prepared to act against Iran and its allies in the Middle East.

"Israel will not allow the regime to put a noose of terror around our neck," Netanyahu told the Munich Security Conference on Sunday. "We will act if necessary not just against Iran's proxies but against Iran itself.

". . . The unfortunate thing is that as ISIS compresses and Iran moves in, it is trying to establish this continuous empire surrounding the Middle East from the south in Yemen but also trying to create a land bridge from Iran to Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Gaza. This is a very dangerous development for our region."

Iran responded to Netanyahu's presentation at the conference, which it accused the United States of using to "revive hysteria" against Iran.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called Netanyahu's presentation a "cartoonish circus, which does not even deserve a response."
