President Donald Trump has issued a strong warning to anyone trading with Iran, just hours after signing an executive order to restore “the most biting sanctions ever imposed” on the country.
The Iran sanctions have officially been cast. These are the most biting sanctions ever imposed, and in November they ratchet up to yet another level. Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States. I am asking for WORLD PEACE, nothing less!

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has responded by saying: “If someone has knife in the hand and seeks talks, he should first put the knife in his pocket.”
