WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) issued the following statement on President Donald J. Trump’s decision to re-impose sanctions on Iran.  

“I applaud President Trump for re-imposing tough economic sanctions on Iran.  The Obama Administration’s disastrous Iran Deal, which I have always opposed, was a failure that did nothing to weaken Iran’s murderous dictatorship or make the world a safer place.  As the world’s leading state sponsor of terror, we cannot allow the Iranian regime to continue to fund violent extremism around the world while imposing oppression and violent behavior against their own people.”
