The Trump administration is taking steps that are "very appropriate" when it comes to Iran, as the Middle Eastern country needs to be "put on notice," Rep. Marsha Blackburn said Friday.
"They know that they should not have tried that missile test," the Tennessee Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" program. "They know that they are in violation of the [nuclear] agreement even though most of you think the agreement that was reached was really not a good deal for the United States."
Blackburn said she's pleased to see President Donald Trump being forceful and not hesitate in letting Iran know that action will be taken.
"This is good for our enemies to see that we have a president who is going to be decisive and that he is going to defend this country," Blackburn said. "[Trump] is going to stand with our men and women in uniform, and he is going to make certain that our allies know that we are with them and our enemies know that we do consider them to be an enemy."
Trump's strong stance will work with Iran, the congresswoman continued, because "they understand power, and they understand force."
"They are going to realize this president is not going to back down and say 'let's go talk about this,'" Blackburn said. "He is going to say 'no, we're going to defend the United States of America and they are going to get that message, and I think that others will get that message very quickly. I'm pleased to say they're moving forward with putting the sanctions back in place."
