Lieberman pointed out that the Iranians have two choices as tensions between the two countries continue to escalate. They can come to the table and negotiate a new nuclear deal with true denuclearization, or continue down that path that will end with the uprising of the Iranian people.
Iran is suffering economically and politically thanks to two big actions taken by President Trump, former independent Sen. Joe Lieberman told FOX Business on Monday.
“[Trump] had the guts to take us out of a bad nuclear agreement with Iran -- that’s the beginning -- big change,” he told Maria Bartiromo. “Second he imposed sanctions on the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps -- also a big change and increased those sanctions.”
The U.S. Air Force on Friday said that it deployed B-52 bombers to the Middle East in response to an unspecified threat from Iran. This comes as the U.S. announced that it no longer plans to extend oil waivers to 8 countries that do business with Iran. In an op-ed for Fox News, Lieberman along with Mark Wallace made a case for Trump to toughen sanctions on Iran.
“Iran is hurting. So it has begun to threaten us and I appreciate very much that the president has basically said with action sending American military forces over to their region don’t think you’re going to strike at us and not have us strike back at you.”
