New York Times admits President Donald Trump’s maximum pressure on Iran is working

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – The world’s worst terrorist, Qasem Soleimani, met his end on January 3rd, 2020. On President Donald J. Trump’s order, the U.S. military executed a flawless strike on Soleimani to keep Americans safe from this mass murderer—who had plans to kill again.

As President Trump promised, the maximum pressure campaign on Iran is now increasing. New sanctions announced last week are targeting the regime’s last remaining sources of export revenue, which Iran’s leaders used to fund terrorism around the world.
