Donald Trump Bitch Smacks Iran Reimposes All Sanctions

Earlier today the Trump administration announced they are restarting ALL U.S. Sanctions on Iran that had been lifted under the President Obama. Te sanctions will take effect nearly immediately, on Monday, and will cover Iran’s shipping, financial and energy sectors. This is one of the commitments Trump made when he was still on the campaign trail. Trump refuses to allow the United States to be weak on international relations, and today he put his money where his mouth is.

The sanctions seem to further than just punishing Iran. The sanctions will also punish other countries who continue to import Iranian oil, as well other countries who are doing business with Iranian businesses on a blacklist. This includes Iran’s central bank. This will make it very difficult to do business with Iran. s.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the sanctions are “aimed at fundamentally altering the behavior of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” He has released a list of 12 demands that Iran must meet if it wants the sanctions lifted. This is long over due.  Some of the items include ending support for terrorism, ending military engagement in Syria, and of course  complete halt to its nuclear and ballistic missile development.

Eight nations, which include Italy, India, Japan and South Korea, will receive waivers from the sanctions. This will allow them to continue to import oil and other petroleum products for a short period so long as they work towards ending such imports entirely. These waivers were made so that the United States does not unfairly punish countries friendly to us.
Stephen Mnuchin, the U.S. Secretary, said over 700 companies and people would be blacklisted.
