In Trumpworld, there’s a Tweet for every subject. In this case, multiple tweets. During the 2012 election, Trump repeatedly claimed that Obama was going to start a war with Iran in order to fire up patriotic sentiment to help him get reelected. Gee, sounds like something Trump himself could now be accused of now that he’s dramatically escalated tensions with that country.
I always said @BarackObama will attack Iran, in some form, prior to the election.

Polls are starting to look really bad for Obama. Looks like he'll have to start a war or major conflict to win. Don't put it past him!

Don't let Obama play the Iran card in order to start a war in order to get elected–be careful Republicans!
