Starting tonight, US sanctions on Iran and anyone who does business will kick in. Did Iran attack someone? Threaten someone? No. President Trump has unilaterally pulled the US out of the nuclear agreement and now demands that all US allies follow suit and, de facto, abrogate the treaty.

China, which is already rapidly expanding its economic presence in Iran. More on this colossal Trump blunder in today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:
