Trott Applauds President Trump Signing Sanctions Against Russia, Iran, and North Korea Into Law

August 2, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Representative Dave Trott (MI-11) issued the following statement after President Trump signed the Countering Adversarial Nations Through Sanctions Act (H.R. 3364), legislation that imposes economic sanctions on Iran, Russia, and North Korea:

“We cannot turn a blind eye to the tyrants who seek to annihilate our nation, destroy our democracy, and finance terror. North Korea, Iran, Russia – these are some of our world’s most nefarious actors, and we must hold them accountable for their overt provocations against our country. I applaud President Trump’s implementation of these new sanctions to choke off their economic lifelines, smothering their ability to undermine our national security and giving us the upper hand we need to protect Americans and our allies at home and around the world.”
