Iran: Trumpís $200bn Sanctions Have Wiped Out Obamaís $150bn Nuclear Deal

The sanctions imposed by President Donald Trump on Iran have more than erased the benefits given by President Barack Obama under the nuclear deal, according to numbers presented by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Under the Iran deal, Iran gained renewed access to up to $150 billion in assets that had been previously frozen. The Obama administration also infamously gave Iran nearly $2 billion in cash for the release of American prisoners who were effectively hostages. The money is believed to have been used, in part, to fund Iranian terror operations.

Rouhani, quoted by Bloomberg News, said Tuesday that U.S. sanctions have cost the country some $200 billion:

Renewed U.S. sanctions have cost Iran $200 billion in foreign-exchange income and investment, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday.

Sanctions have deprived the Islamic Republic of $100 billion in oil revenue in the last two years and an equal amount in foreign investment credit, Rouhani said in a televised speech, according to his official website.

The sanctions have punished Iran for its role in developing weapons of mass destruction; for its sponsorship of terror groups in the region and worldwide; and for its repressive human rights abuses against its own citizens.

Last April, the State Department said “maximum pressure means maximum pressure.

Well, boo freakin' hoo!

Turn the screws even harder Mr. President. I want to see Rouhani's eyeballs pop out of his head.

Yeah, but the $150 B was cash and went straight to the mullahs, and whatever was left after their girlfriends got through with it went into the Iranian nuclear program.

The $200 B is mostly coming out of the lifestyles and comforts of ordinary Iranians.

We had no deal....it was never ratified by the US Senate, as the constitution mandates.

That is why the Paris Climate Agreement was never in effect....it was never ratified.

Yeah. Then the decent percentage, Obama laundered back to himself and Kerry.

Speaking of Kerry, his assurances to Iran Trump would be gone as a result of the coup didn't work out.

The impeachment insanity is as much about this deal falling through as anything.

Obama and Kerry want their MONEY! ...and their willing to pay Schiff, Nadler and Pelosi handsomely for their efforts if successful.

Apples and oranges, you execrable rag maggot.

Think of that 150B as your fine for holding our people hostage when that @hole Carter was in office.

And though we may never get this part back, our communist mulatto usurper that shipped that pallet of 2B over there is still and forever a traitor.

Iranians can start collecting returnable bottles and cans for cash. Or Biden can teach them how to code.

Sympathy for anti-American scum who threaten to send ICBMS against the US and Israel:

Zero.

Obama made a $2billion dollar
dollar payment in cash and in secret. He tried to hide the payments by paying in gold and foreign currency. What he did is a 1000 times worse then the phone call president Trump made.

The POTUS is not supposed to make agreements with foreign nations without Senate ratification.

This is just another way to subvert the constitutional checks and balances.
