Rep. Poe Applauds Reimplementation of Sanctions on Rogue Iranian Regime

I released the following statement in response to the United States sanctioning of the rogue Iranian regime.
Former President Barack Obama’s ill-advised 2015 nuclear deal was crafted behind closed doors, without the approval of Congress. Already, President Trump has taken distinct action to sanction the rogue Iranian regime, withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran and sending a clear message that the era of appeasement for the mullahs’ threats and evil ambitions is over. Today the United States took yet another step forward, restoring major sanctions previously suspended under the Iranian Nuclear Deal. Make no mistake, the United States will not negotiate with a terrorist regime who has continually suppressed its own people and failed, at every turn, to uphold its end of the agreement to end nuclear weapon development. To the people of Iran, I encourage you to continue the peaceful struggle for a secular, democratic, non-nuclear Iran- a free Iran.
