During a rambling back and forth with White House reporters before he took off for Camp David, Donald Trump boasted that his ultimate goal for Iran -- providing he doesn't launch a military attack against the country and "obliterate" it -- is to "Make Iran great again."
You could almost hear the assembled reporters' eyes roll.
Needless to say, Twitter users pounced, with one simply stating, "LOL, nope - Iran."
