Describing the mullahs’ regime as the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, U.S. President Donald Trump blasted the Iranian regime’s support for the Assad regime in butchering the Syrian people. Iran’s mullah should never be permitted to obtain nuclear weapons, he highlighted.
Voicing his position to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, Trump emphasized how the Iranian regime used money from the highly flawed deal for terrorism and creating havoc. The U.S. imposed sanctions to confront the Iranian regime’s malign activities, he continued.
