Trump isn’t messing around with Iran. Earlier this week Iran admitting to violating its international agreement for non-armament by test firing missiles. Now Trump has slammed them with new sanctions with threats of more severe action.
Here’s more from Bloomberg:
The U.S. imposed fresh sanctions on Iran as President Donald Trump seeks to punish Tehran for its ballistic missile program after warning the Islamic Republic that it is “playing with fire.”
In a statement Friday morning, the Treasury Department published a list of 13 individuals and 12 entities facing new restrictions, some for contributing to proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and others for links to terrorism.
Ahead of the announcement, Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, said, “Iran unmoved by threats as we derive security from our people.” He added later: “We will never use our weapons against anyone, except in self-defense.”
