Pompeo to Iran after nuclear deal violation: ‘We are not done’


Iranian officials announced on Monday that the mullah regime continues to violate the terms of the nuclear deal brokered during the Obama era, but Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shot back at the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Summit in Washington, DC.


“We’ve implemented the strongest pressure campaign in history against the Iranian regime, and we are not done,” Pompeo said to a cheering crowd on Monday.


“We’ve cut off billions in funds that Iran’s leadership would have used for various nefarious purposes, not the least of which would have been their efforts to destroy the state of Israel,” Pompeo said.


“It is also the case that, under President Trump, Israel haters such as Hamas, Hezbollah, and Islamic Jihad received far less blood money to pursue their terrorism than ever in recent history,” Pompeo said.
