Handel Statement on President Trump Reimposing Iran Sanctions

August 6, 2018 \\ Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Representative Karen Handel (GA-6) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s decision to reimpose tough sanctions on the Iranian regime:

“As I’ve said previously, the Iran Deal is a bad deal that was never in the best interests of our country or our allies. Iran continues to oppress its people, continues its nuclear proliferation, and continues its aggressive posture against Israel and others. In reinstating tough sanctions, President Trump is taking specific steps to ensure our national security and is sending a strong message that Iran’s continued aggression and nuclear build-up will not be tolerated.”
