So yesterday, the House voted to limit the President’s powers against Iran.
So Trump does a very Trump thing. He imposed more sanctions on Iran. The kicker here is that it is not just on Iran, but on anyone, that deals with Iran.
“First, The President is issuing an Executive Order authorizing the imposition of additional sanctions against any individual owning operating, trading with or assisting sectors of the Iranian economy including construction, manufacturing, textiles, and mining.”
JUST IN: Treasury Sec. Mnuchin announces additional sanctions against Iran.
"The president has been very clear: we will continue to apply economic sanctions until Iran stops its terrorist activities and commits that it will never have nuclear weapons." https://t.co/0JIQlOlvVs pic.twitter.com/fnIt1GvWzl

Iran will continue to be crippled economically until they lay down their terrorism. With 17 specific sanctions on the Iranian shell corporations, and shipping vessels. The Iranian officials are not safe.

I love that Pompeo came to the podium with a smirk on his face. As to say, Democrats, you can try and stop us but we will find a way to help the American people whether you like it or not.
These sanctions are in hopes that Iran will stop promoting terrorism.
The crazy thing is that Iran being stopped is beneficial to the entire world, not just to Trump.
I used to think that the left understood that, and just decided to go against any Trump says. Now, I am not sure that they know their right from their left.
“We don’t know exactly which day it would have been executed, but it was very clear. Qasem Soleimani himself was plotting a broad, large-scale attack against American interests, and those attacks were imminent.”
“The goal of our campaign is to deny the regime the resource to conduct its destructive foreign policy.”
Trump’s campaign to end Iranian terrorism has cost the Iranian economy BILLIONS in income. No revenue, no terrorism.
Tie his hands, call him incompetent, and yet he still shows up and does the right thing for the people of America.
