Trump Authorizes Treasury to Sanction Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald Trump announced on Friday that he has authorized the U.S. Department of Treasury to sanction Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization under terrorism Executive Order 13224, a move the leader of the free world said was “long overdue.”

“I am authorizing the Treasury Department to sanction the entire Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps for its support for terrorism and to apply sanctions to its officials, agents, and affiliates,” Trump said, referring to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as “the Iranian Supreme Leader’s corrupt personal terror force and militia.”


Trump called for America’s allies to join the United States “in taking strong actions to curb Iran’s continued dangers and destabilizing behavior, including thorough sanctions outside the Iran deal that target the regime’s ballistic missile program and support for terrorism, and all of its destructive activities; of which there are many.”


On Friday, the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) designated the IRGC in a press release coinciding with the commander-in-chief’s announcement.
