Only in Obamaworld would we sell aircraft to a regime that might use them against us and that is killing our service members. As I understood it, Obamaworld is supposed to be over.
President Trump should cancel airplane sales to Iranian airlines that facilitate terrorism, a pair of Republican lawmakers urged Monday, the Washington Examiner reported.
“Iran’s commercial airlines have American blood on their hands,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., wrote in a letter to Trump.
A government decision to block the aircraft sales would provoke an uproar at home and abroad. It would cost Boeing, which has inked a pair of deals to sell 110 to Iran-based airlines, about $20 billion. It could deter American and European businesses from investing in Iran, which the regime’s leaders have argued amounts to violation of the nuclear agreement that former President Barack Obama’s team negotiated.
