President Donald Trump, in consultation with his national security team, has approved a new strategy which focuses on neutralizing Iran's destabilizing influence and constraining its aggression, particularly its support for terrorism and militants.
This strategy will aggressively counter threats to the United States and its allies from ballistic missiles and other asymmetric weapons, which includes denying the Iranian regime—and especially the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)—funding for its illicit activities, and opposing IRGC activities that extort the wealth of the Iranian people.
After nine months of deliberation with Congress and American allies on how to best protect American security, President Trump intends that the U.S. will deny the Iranian regime and stop all paths to a nuclear weapon.
President Trump said, "It is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that Iran's government end its pursuit of death and destruction."
"The Obama administration's policy toward Iran has allowed this terrorist regime to get closer to its goal of obtaining a nuclear weapon," said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, President of Christians in Defense of Israel, and Founder and President of Covenant Journey. "President Trump is finally putting an end to the dangerous policy of the Obama administration. President Trump has inherited a mess from prior Republican and Democratic presidents who liked to talk but were afraid to act. I am encouraged that we now have a president who will protect America, Israel and our many allies by demanding a change in the Iranian's regime's behavior."
