Inhofe Statement on Iran Sanctions

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) praised President Trump for continuing to stand strong against Iran and promote American leadership around the world:

“Three months ago, President Trump stood up against Iran’s malign behavior by pulling out of flawed Iran Deal. Today, he continues his leadership by reimposing strong sanctions that will show Iran that their support for terrorism and expansion of their ballistic missile capabilities are unacceptable.

“We’ve seen how the president has leveraged sanctions and economic pressure to drive North Korea and other rogue regimes to the negotiating table. By forcing Tehran to confront the consequences of their destabilizing regional actions, I believe the president will see real results through his tough sanctions.”
