On Monday, Trump tweeted a warning to Iran - ' IRAN WILL NEVER HAVE A NUCLEAR WEAPON!', which was met with Rouhani reminding him of Iran's uranium resources. As several media outlets reported at the time, the image actually depicts Obama meeting with former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in 2011. There are a few problems with this photo and message, as Rouhani is still very much the president of Iran and Obama does not have two thumbs on his left hand. Gosar for sharing the doctored image, prompting the congressman to defend himself by tweeting more than 40 minutes later that "no one said this wasn't photoshopped".

"The point remains to all but the dimmest: Obama coddled, appeased, nurtured and protected the world's No.1 sponsor of terror. The world will be better off without Rouhani".
