Trump Announces 'Hard-Hitting' Iran Sanctions
Trump Announces 'Hard-Hitting' Iran Sanctions President Donald Trump announced the executive order imposing the sanctions from the Oval Office. Trump said that his actions "follow a series of aggressive behaviors by the Iranian regime in recent weeks." Iran recently shot down a U.S. military drone it claimed had flown into Iranian territory. U.S. officials have denied the claim. Trump blamed the "supreme leader of Iran" for "the hostile conduct of his regime." The sanctions will deny Ayatollah Ali Khamenei "access to key financial resources and support." Secretary Treasurer Steve Mnuchin said the sanctions will "lock up literally billions of dollars of assets." Trump is reportedly willing to hold talks with Iran.
