Omar Attacks Trump Over Plan to Add More Sanctions on Iran, Says “It Makes No Sense”

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) reacted to President Trump’s press conference announcing more sanctions on Iran by accusing him of “economic warfare” and not having a “measured response.”

Omar Tweeted:

This makes no sense. Sanctions are economic warfare.

They have already caused medical shortages and countless deaths in Iran.

You cannot claim to want deescalation and then announce new sanctions with no clear goal. This is not a measured response!

President Trump said earlier the US “will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions” on Iran as we evaluate options”
