The United States, under Joe Biden, imported a cargo of 1.033 million barrels of Iranian crude in March, ignoring U.S. sanctions still in place on Iran’s energy sector, data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed.
Financial Post The cargo is only the second oil import by the United States from Iran since late 1991, data on EIA’s website showed. The EIA could not be immediately reached for comment.
Gateway Pundit (h/t Nita) President Trump imposed sanctions against Iran due to the Iranian regime’s numerous atrocities and terrorist actions. In October of 2020 the President added more:
The Trump administration on Thursday announced sweeping new sanctions on Iran’s financial sector, targeting at least 18 banks in a move that critics say will hamper humanitarian assistance during the pandemic.
The fresh round of sanctions is part of the administration’s “maximum pressure campaign” that aims to push the Islamic republic toward negotiations over its nuclear program and prevent the country from financing military actions throughout the Middle East.
Not only did Trump put sanctions on Iran, he demanded all buyers of Iranian oil stop purchases by May 1, 2019 or face US sanctions, a move to choke off Tehran’s oil revenues. Trump said Saudi Arabia and others in OPEC “will more than make up the oil flow difference in our now full sanctions on Iranian Oil.”
Now the Biden administration has imported oil from Iran, it signals to Iran that Obama policies are back with them and they can continue their ways of building a nuke and terrorizing the Middle East and the world.
