Webster Praises Reimposing Iran Sanctions

Washington, DC – Congressman Daniel Webster, (R-Clermont), today released the following statement after President Trump announced he was reimposing Iran sanctions.

“Today, President Trump has announced he is reimposing all the sanctions that had previously been lifted under President Obama’s terrible Iran deal. These sanctions target the Central Bank of Iran and other key financial institutions.  This will cut off Iran’s access to funds they use to bankroll terrorist groups, support nuclear and ballistic missile programs, and enrich their leaders. The sanctions also target key Iranian-related individuals who have known ties to Iran’s terrorism support, weapons program, engage in human rights abuses and other criminal activities.

“I applaud President Trump for once again keeping a campaign promise and taking seriously the responsibility to protect our country.”
