HUGE: President Trump designates Iran's Revolutionary Guard a 'foreign terrorist organization'
President Trump on Monday formally labeled Iran's Revolutionary Guard a "foreign terrorist organization," in Washington’s first such designation for an eIran'sntire foreign government entity.
The designation imposes sanctions that include freezes on assets the IRGC may have in U.S. jurisdictions and a ban on Americans doing business with it. The move also allows the U.S. to deny entry to people found to have provided the Guard with material support or prosecute them for sanctions violations.
In a statement, Trump said the unprecedented move “underscores the fact that Iran’s actions are fundamentally different from those of other governments.”
He warned: “If you are doing business with the IRGC, you will be bankrolling terrorism. This action sends a clear message to Tehran that its support for terrorism has serious consequences.”
This is the first time a part of another government has been designated as an FTO.
The liberal media is already calling this, "Unprecedented".
If it's unprecedented for stopping terrorism, so be it.
