The U.S. State Department on Tuesday announced new sanctions against Iran over alleged support for terrorism and Iran’s ballistic missile program. The move will blacklist 18 people accused of having ties to Iran’s military, freezing any of their U.S. assets. The sanctions came one day after the Trump administration begrudgingly certified that Iran has complied with its obligations under the Obama-brokered nuclear agreement. As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump promised to “rip up” the Iran nuclear deal, calling it the “worst deal ever.”
