White House Promises To Increase Sanctions On Iran

The White House is promising additional sanctions on Iran following the recent attack on Saudi oil facilities.

On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted that he had instructed Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to “substantially increase” sanctions, after previously saying the U.S. was “locked and loaded” in preparation to respond.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is traveling to Saudi Arabia to discuss the attacks with Saudi leadership. The White House has not shared details on what the stricter sanctions would mean.
