Rouhani Vows to Shed Iran Sanctions as Trump Piles on More - Bloomberg

Rouhani Vows to Shed Iran Sanctions as Trump Piles on More - Bloomberg:

"A day after winning re-election last month, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani reaffirmed a campaign pledge: that he’ll find a way to free his country from sanctions that hobble its economy.

That’s a vow President Donald Trump and U.S. lawmakers are making harder than ever to keep.

Trump used his first overseas trip last week to portray Shiite-led Iran as the embodiment of evil, the common enemy that could bring America’s Sunni-led Gulf allies together with Israel to achieve Middle East peace. In Washington, Republicans in Congress are also doubling down, pressing for legislation to add more sanctions, not lift those that remain after the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers."
