CRAMER STATEMENT ON REINSTATING SANCTIONS ON IRAN

Nov 2, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement on the Trump Administration’s announcement today to reimpose sanctions on Iran that were lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal:

 

“Today’s announcement is the latest effort by the Trump Administration to correct one of the worst policies implemented by the Obama Administration and Senate Democrats, and reaffirms the United States’ commitment to stand up to aggressive regimes who knowingly support acts of terrorism. I am pleased the Trump Administration will reinforce sanctions on Iranian oil, a decision which will promote greater U.S. exports. These sanctions will put pressure on Iran’s economy, which was only emboldened by the disastrous nuclear agreement under President Obama.”
