President Trump took direct aim at former President Barack Obama on Wednesday, blaming the last administration for giving Iran money that he claimed was then used by Tehran to pay for missiles that were aimed at U.S. troops in Iraq.

“The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration,” Trump said from the White House, referring to settlement money the U.S. paid to Iran in 2016.

Trump addressed the nation the morning after the Iranian regime launched more than a dozen missiles at bases in Iraq that housed U.S. troops. That was in retaliation for the U.S. strike last week that took out top Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.

In his remarks, he pointed the finger at the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal, or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) from which the U.S. withdrew in 2018. While supporters of the deal claimed it kept Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, Trump on Wednesday renewed his assertion that it emboldened Tehran.



How many people have been killed across the globe becuase of the 150 Billion Dollars of unmarked currencies that B. Hussein gave his muslim brothers?

“Iran's hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013, and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash,” he said. “Instead of saying thank you to the United States, they chanted 'Death to America.'”

-President Donald J. Trump

No, the US did not GIVE money to Iran....as part of the deal that NUMEROUS countries hammered out and agreed to meant that Irans OWN ASSETS that had been frozen were unfrozen and gave Iran access to its OWN money.

If someone freezes your bank account and wont allow you access to your OWN money but they then agree to stop the freeze, they didnt GIVE you money, they simply stopped standing in your way of you accessing your own money.

Iran only gained access to their own assets....how is that the US giving them money?

Doesn't matter if it's their money. They shouldn't have it.

Your childish name calling makes you sound kind of goofballish. But as a trump loyalist, I imagine it's all you have.
It's all your pals have that call the President derisive names all day every day. I'm just doing the same.

Ok, thats rather insane to think its reasonable to say a nation should not have its own resources! They are entitled to their own resources just like any other nation.
No, they aren't. Can you think of a reason why they should be sanctioned?

No one in their right mind gives the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism 150 Billion Dollars in unmarked currencies unless you are on their side.
