President Donald Trump just pulled the trigger and Iran is devastated. The rogue nation — one of the leading sponsors of terrorism in the world — is being held accountable for its crimes.
“President Donald Trump confirmed on Wednesday that the United States will ask the U.N. Security Council to restore all sanctions against Iran,” reported Breitbart News this week.
The sanctions “were lifted as part of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal,” which was signed by President Barack Obama in 2015.

Now, according to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the Trump administration will file what is known as a “snapback” complaint against Iran — with the hope of fully restoring the sanctions that Obama lifted.
“This will be a fully valid enforceable Security Council resolution and we have every expectation that it will be enforced just like every other Security Council resolution that is in place,” said Pompeo.
