Donald Trump announces new US sanctions next Iran central bank

US President Donald Trump on Friday announced new sanctions on Iran’s central bank, predicting the steps the”greatest” sanctions ever imposed on a foreign nation by the USA.

“We’ve only resisted the European federal bank,” Trump told reporters at the Oval Office, later clarifying that he had been speaking to the Iranian central bank.

“These will be the greatest sanctions ever imposed on a nation,” he explained.

Trump earlier this week declared what he said could be new sanctions against Iran, in reaction to what US officials say was probably civic participation in an attack on Saudi oil facilities.
