BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:50 P.M.) – U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Wednesday that the Trump administration has sanctioned Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
Pompeo, using his official Twitter account, made the announcement, while tagging Zarif and Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah ‘Ali Khamenei.
Recently, President @realDonaldTrump sanctioned Iran’s Supreme Leader, who enriched himself at the expense of the Iranian people. Today, the U.S. designated his chief apologist @JZarif. He’s just as complicit in the regime’s outlaw behavior as the rest of @khamenei_ir’s mafia. pic.twitter.com/XhDdqR6rik
