President Biden confirmed that the administration has caved to Iran and will lift certain sanctions to try and get Iran to recommit to the 2015 nuclear deal.
Ned Price, a spokesperson for the State Department, said on Thursday that the Biden administration “will need to lift” sanctions implemented by former President Donald Trump.
Biden’s handling of Iran has been abysmal so far. Former President Trump forced Iran into a corner; Biden has let them out and allowed them to dictate terms.
Biden isn’t just caving in to pressure from Iran, but also pressure from China. China has been working with Iran to get the United States to lift sanctions.
Americans shouldn’t be surprised by Biden’s weakness when it comes to Iran. Biden served as Vice President under former President Obama, who engineered the 2015 nuclear deal that completely failed to curb Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
Biden was never going to stand up to Iran and China, and Trump tried to warn Americans. Now Biden sits in the Oval Office, and Iran will likely be free of sanctions and free to pursue their nuclear ambitions.
