About "Sanctions Are Coming"
The development of nuclear weapons in unstable regions is a major concern for US foreign policy. Rumors of Iranian attempts to develop functional nuclear capabilities in the early 2000s led to significant tension between the US and Iran, in addition to sanctions levied by the US. In 2015, the US and Iran reached a nuclear agreement in which Iran agreed to limit nuclear development and allow international inspections of nuclear activity in return for the removal of economic sanctions on the country. The deal was repealed by President Trump in 2017. As a result of the pressure of the new US policy, Iran’s oil sector has suffered major losses.
On Friday, November 2nd, the president tweeted, “Sanctions are coming, November 5th,” confirming the focus of the administration on using maximum pressure to halt Iranian development. The tweet preceded the reinstatement of all economic and trade sanctions on Iran. Critics have cited the potential for destabilizing the Middle East. Supporters have responded that the only way to undermine the Iranian regime is through destabilization. Either way, the future of the Middle East and US foreign policy will likely be heavily impacted by the reimposed sanctions.
This week’s final round goes deep into Trump’s policy with Iran. Other topics include immigration, trade, space exploration, constitutionality, and much more!
