President Trump did not respond militarily to Tehran’s failed attack. Instead, he issued new economic sanctions against the regime.
Ilhan Omar, who wants economic sanctions against our ally Israel, said that Trump’s measured response was tantamount to genocide.
This makes no sense. Sanctions are economic warfare.
They have already caused medical shortages and countless deaths in Iran.
You cannot claim to want deescalation and then announce new sanctions with no clear goal. This is not a measured response! https://t.co/sGWtwXuNDT
