President Trump has officially rolled out sanctions against Iran, in a reversal from President Obama’s surrender to the barbaric regime. The Daily Caller reports:
The Trump administration said it has taken its final steps to remove the United States from the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement.
On Monday, the administration said it restored previously lifted sanctions on Iranian banking, shipping and energy. Officials announced sanctions on 50 Iranian banks, 200 individuals and ships, an Iranian airline and more than 65 airplanes in what the Treasury Department said is its “largest ever single-day action targeting Iran.”
“The Iranian regime has a choice: It can either do a 180-degree turn from its outlaw course of action and act like a normal country, or it can see its economy crumble,” said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. “I promise you that doing business with Iran in defiance of our sanctions will ultimately be a much more painful business decision.”
“We are at an economic war situation. We are standing up to a bullying enemy,” said Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. “Yesterday, Saddam was in front us, today Trump is front of us. There is no difference. We must resist and win.”
Instead of simply targeting Iran, the US will now punish other states who do business with them, in a effort to force countries to pick a side. Will they chose freedom or Shariah terrorism?
