White House spokesperson, Sarah Sanders, brilliantly slammed Obama, Kerry & Clinton. A reporter asked her to respond to their criticism of the Trump administration’s reinstatement of sanctions on Iran. Secretary of State Pompeo officially announced the reinstatement of the economic sanctions on Iran in order to stop its nuclear program and its worldwide terror.
Secretary of State Pompeo’s Announcement
“Our objective is to starve the Iranian regime of the revenue it uses to fund violent and destabilizing activities throughout the Middle East and around the world. Our ultimate goal is to convince the regime to abandon its revolutionary course. Rest assured, Iran will never come close to getting a nuclear weapon on President Trump’s watch.”
Obama’s nuclear deal not only did not stop the Iranian nuclear program. But it also did not have the mandate to stop the horrendous state-sponsored terror of Iran, in the Middle East and around the world. Instead, as part of the deal, Obama illegally and secretly handed over $140 billion in cash to Iran. That was then used to further their terror activities in the Middle East and around the world.

Today marks the 39th anniversary of the U.S. embassy takeover in Tehran, when more than 50 of our colleagues were taken hostage. Their courage & resolve over 444 days in captivity continues to underscore our commitment to compel #Iran to permanently abandon its outlaw activities.

The International Monetary Fund @IMFNews is projecting a 3.6% decline in #Iran’s economy next year. That’s what happens when the ruling regime steals from its people and invests in Assad. Instead of creating jobs for Iranians, they ruin the economy.

We congratulate the government of #Denmark on its arrest of an Iranian regime assassin. For nearly 40 years, Europe has been the target of #Iran-sponsored terrorist attacks. We call on our allies and partners to confront the full range of Iran’s threats to peace and security.
