It's fine if Trump thinks this, or anything regarding Iran or whatever. But keep it internal and just don't post that poop online.
It's an old tweet from 2014, not right now. The point is to juxtapose his views from a few years back with his policies as President
During his campaign Trump did espouse some pretty strong anti-Saudi rhetoric - accusing them of buying influence in the US and of supporting Sunni terrorist groups, both of which are fairly well documented - and that was one of the reasons I supported him. It was fairly disappointing when he got into office and did a complete 180 on Saudi Arabia and was suddenly all for more arms sales and such
In any case I don't think he's going to authorize a US strike on Iran right now for a number of reasons, but he may very well choose to support a Saudi strike on Iran with American intelligence and targeting information (which was evidently one of the options presented to him)
