Trump Admin Plans to Pile On More Iran Sanctions Every Week Until Biden’s Inauguration

According to a report from Axios, the Trump administration is coordinating with Israel and several Gulf states to slap sanctions on Iran every week until Joe Biden is inaugurated as president on January 20th.

The report was published on Sunday and cites Israeli sources who said the Trump administration plans to make it as difficult as possible for Biden to revive the 2015 nuclear deal. “The goal is to slap as many sanctions as possible on Iran until January 20th,” one source said.

The sanctions will be imposed on Iran for its ballistic missiles program, the Islamic Republic’s support for groups in other countries in the Middle East, and alleged human rights violations.

One source said Trump’s envoy for Iran, Elliot Abrams, said the administration wants to announce a new set of sanctions on Iran every week until January 20th. Speaking to reporters in Israel on Monday, Abrams confirmed the plan for a set of new sanctions but downplayed the idea that they were related to the election.
