President Trump recently offered to give the Iranians help, but it won’t go towards helping them in their nuke intentions…
Falling into The Iranian Regime’s Coronavirus Trap
- How on earth it is in the US “national interest” to allow a regime that is kidnapping and killing Americans and their allies, and planning to attack US diplomatic facilities, to receive billions of dollars in aid?
- An additional problem, based on a pattern for which Iran has only itself to blame, is that there is no evidence that Iran has the slightest intention of using these funds to mitigate the coronavirus pandemic or to help Iran’s people. The Trump administration already offered to send medical help to Iran, but Iran has continued to turn it down. “Possibly,” Supreme Guide Ali Kamemei said, “your medicine is a way to spread the virus more.”
- Moreover, there have also been suggestions that a secret Iranian fund of reportedly $200 billion, controlled by Supreme Guide Ali Khamenei, could perfectly well help Iran to fund its crisis.
While the Iranian regime has been killing Americans during the coronavirus crisis and planning to kill more, President Trump’s plan to block the mullahs’ request for $5 billion in aid, as well as his Iran policy of maximum pressure, are definitely steps in the right direction.

While the Iranian regime has been killing Americans during the coronavirus crisis and planning to kill more, a group of American politicians are urging US President Donald J. Trump to loosen sanctions on Tehran regime and refrain from blocking the mullahs’ request for $5 billion in aid.
He pointed out that it is “bad enough that the Trump administration abandoned the Iran nuclear deal in favor of a strategy of ‘maximum pressure;” he added that “it makes no sense, in a global health crisis, to compound that failure with cruelty by inhibiting access to needed humanitarian assistance. Whatever our profound differences with the Iranian government, we should support the Iranian people.”
Biden, however, seems to have forgotten that, during his vice presidency, the US administration and the Iranian regime sold the world the idea that the lifting of UN sanctions, the nuclear agreement, and adopting appeasement policies towards the mullahs would help the Iranian people and make the Iranian government a constructive player. At the end of Biden’s vice presidency, evidence showed that, in fact, the opposite had taken place. People in oil-rich Iran were suffering financially. Unemployment among youths — approximately 60% of the Iranian population was under 30 years of age – reached a record-high of roughly 31%. Many of the youths were highly educated and tech-savvy but could not find a job. Since then, inflation and poverty have remained high.
