Trump Hits Iran With New Sanctions

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo introduced new sanctions today in hopes of paralyzing the Iranian regime.

Trump administration officials announced the new sanctions today while battling persistent questions about their assertions that an “imminent” attack sparked the decision to kill a well respected Iranian general.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said, “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.”

According to USA Today, the new penalties target Iran’s construction, manufacturing, textiles, mining, steel and iron industries. They also blacked listed eight senior Iranian leaders, including the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council.

The new sanctions will add to a growing list of penalties already in place as part of the Trump administration’s effort to cripple Iran’s economy and force its leaders to stop supporting terrorism in the region, among other demands.
