President Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken says despite the fact Iran is funding multiple known terrorist groups across the globe the U.S. may still repeal Trump-era sanctions. During an interview with ABC News George Stephanapolous Blinken stopped short of saying Iran, the world’s top sponsor of terrorist organizations, helped fund recent Hamas attacks against Israel.

The Daily Wire reports:

“Your administration is continuing to pursue nuclear negotiations with Iran, but 42 Republican senators have called on the president to end the negotiations, make it clear that sanctions will remain in place because of Iranian funding of Hamas. Do you believe that Iran is funding Hamas? And if they are, should the sanctions stay in place?” asked the host.

“You know, George, Iran is engaged in a number of activities, including funding extremist groups, supporting terrorism more broadly, supporting very dangerous proxies that are taking destabilizing actions throughout the Middle East, proliferating weapons, and two things on that. One, an Iran with a nuclear weapon or with the capability to build one in very short order is going to act with even greater impunity in those areas, which just adds to the urgency of trying to put the nuclear problem back in the box that the nuclear agreement put it in,” said Blinken.

“The Iranians say the decision to raise — to lift some of the sanctions has already been made. Is that true?” Stephanopoulos pressed.

“We have been now over — we’re about to have our, I think, fifth round of discussions in Vienna with the Iranians,” Blinken replied. “And what these discussions and talks, indirect, as you know, have done is they’ve clarified what each sides needs to do in order to come back into compliance. So we know what sanctions would need to be lifted if they’re inconsistent with the nuclear agreement, but as important and indeed more important, Iran, I think, knows what it needs to do to come back into compliance on the nuclear side. And what we haven’t seen is whether Iran is ready and willing to make a decision to do what it has to do. That’s the test and we don’t yet have an answer.”

Former President Trump issued a number of sanctions against Iran as well as pulling out of the 2015 nuclear deal. However now, the Biden administration in talks to re-enter the agreement. 

    1. More MORON that he put TIGHT SANCTIONS on AMERICA & AMERICAN, he never the right person to be AMERICAN’S president, he was the ENERMY from the top, he was AMERICAN’S TRAITOR, AMERICAN should turn him up side down & KICK HIM OUT

  1. Duh! Of course little Joe sides with America’s enemies. That’s because little Joe is ALSO one of America’s enemies!

  2. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Trump is Iran’s enemy. Trump is Biden’s enemy. YOU figure it out.

  3. We all know that Senile Joe is not running the country. He barely knows what flavor of ice cream he had. Great work so-called journalist. You are now more of an embarrassment than Joe. Your narrative pushed divisions within our country, so now our enemies are throwing that right back in our face, which gives them leverage; not us. Why listen to the squad? They are a minority of main stream Americans. Just by their comments, they should be held in contempt for America and the America values. They should not be in the congress and should be tried for treason. Who votes to put these morons in there anyway? If these kind of people get somehow put out of OUR misery, I will not blink nor shed a tear.

  4. Incompetence thy name is Joe Biden! Stupidity thy name is Joe Biden. Immorality thy name is Joe Biden. And ALL of this describes the political party that nominated the brain damaged cretin for president. The American Democrat Party is “no damn good”!!!

  5. 1/3 of Americans today question whether the U.S. should have fought WWII.
    More and more I’m starting to care less and less about anything the moron Biden and all of the other moron democrats do because America is quickly becoming a nation of morons. And the young morons of this country deserve to live miserable lives for being so stupid. (Maybe they can all sue their parents in the future….lol,)
    China really needs to ask itself if it really wants to take this country over in the future when the moron generation has become the majority.

  6. I am so bitterly ashamed that (1) a Marxist Kenyan imposter and (2) a 47-year congressional / vice-presidential ne’er-do-well nincompoop BOTH got to be President of the United States. Is there no hope for Western Civilization?

    1. Not until we get more REPUBLICANS in office & then we can get the White House back. VOTE REPUBLICAN STRAIGHT ACROSS !!!!!

  7. Blinken – Another Biden idiot. Many people believe Biden selected him because he is even dumber than Biden (I know that is hard to believe).

    So Blinken comes down against Israel and backs Hamas. Yeah, he is a complete idiot.

  8. Is not…..iran……a enemy of our country. Is giving aid and comfort to our enemy a …….charge of TREASON? If so should those doing/giving this aid be charged?

  9. Go easy on America’s enemies? He’s one of them. What does he need two more naps each day? His Marxist handlers do all his work for him. He doesn’t even have to remember where he is at at any given time of day. Utter disgrace.

  10. 6/1/2021, Iran has radioactive uranium in “lots” of places? “WHO” are these jerks overseeing “this stuff”? Thank God for the “Massad”.Read the “Apocalypse”, Blessed Mother “appearing: all over the place to WARN “Us”.

Pray “big time” & get ready for “the three days of darkness”. A blood red moon, super COLD & NO LIGHT, EXCEPT for blessed bees wax candles that will burn.”THIS” will happen “when the lilacs bloom.
