Putin’s Puppet Levies Sanctions on Iran

You know, for a Russian stooge, President Trump really enjoys placing sanctions on America’s enemies.

President Donald Trump announced Monday that he is designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) a foreign terrorist organization in a major escalation of a pressure campaign on the Islamic Republic.

The IRGC has long been implicated in terrorist plots against the U.S. military throughout the Middle East and provides major financial support to other known terrorist organizations such as Lebanese Hezbollah.

Trump’s designation of the IRGC allows the U.S. Treasury Department to levy sanctions not only on the organization itself but entities that do business with them. These sanctions constitute the harshest actions the U.S. government can take with implications that reverberate throughout the global financial system.

Word is getting out to the Middle East; you deal with Iran, and your countries will be sanctioned as well. There’s a new sheriff in town, and his name is Donald Trump.

  1. Think King Barry (or is that Queen) will give another 90 minute speech & break his record of referencing himself (he’s gotta go over 400 to do it)?
