Trump Says Iran Nuclear Deal Is 'Embarrassment' to U.S.

Updated on

The U.S. Treasury Department imposed financial sanctions Thursday against 11 entities and people for supporting Iranian activity the Trump administration considers hostile, including cyber-attacks against U.S. financial institutions.

“Treasury will continue to take strong actions to counter Iran’s provocations, including support for the IRGC-Qods Force and terrorist extremists, the ongoing campaign of violence in Syria, and cyber-attacks meant to destabilize the U.S. financial system,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.
