The Trump administration announced Monday the reimposition of sanctions on Iran that were lifted as part of a nuclear agreement with the country.

The sanctions will take effect at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday and follow through on the order President Trump gave when he withdrew from the nuclear pact in May.

“The United States is fully committed to enforcing all of our sanctions, and we will work closely with nations conducting business with Iran to ensure complete compliance. Individuals or entities that fail to wind down activities with Iran risk severe consequences,” Trump said in a statement Monday.

“The JCPOA, a horrible, one-sided deal, failed to achieve the fundamental objective of blocking all paths to an Iranian nuclear bomb, and it threw a lifeline of cash to a murderous dictatorship that has continued to spread bloodshed, violence, and chaos,” he added, using the acronym for the official name of the nuclear deal.

The article goes on to state the following:

In announcing the sanctions action, administration officials touted Iran’s ongoing civil unrest and economic woes and reiterated Trump’s openness to meeting with Iranian leaders.

“The president has been very clear: none of this needs to happen,” a senior administration official told reporters on a background briefing call. “He will meet with Iranian leadership at any time to discuss a real, comprehensive deal that will contain their regional ambitions, will end their malign behavior and deny them any paths to a nuclear weapon.”

Seeking to fulfill a campaign promise to tear up what he’s called the “worst deal ever negotiated,” Trump announced in May he was withdrawing the United States from the 2015 nuclear deal.
