Feb 6, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement on the Trump administration’s announcement of new sanctions on Iran:  
 
“I applaud President Donald Trump’s swift action to hold the regime in Iran accountable for testing another intercontinental ballistic missile on Sunday. Imposing strong sanctions against individuals and businesses makes it clear that the United States will stand with our allies against Iranian aggression.
 
“This is what peace through strength looks like. 
 
“I was grateful to work in a bipartisan manner with Seth Moulton to address this issue in the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act after Iran tested a ballistic missile that had ‘Israel must be wiped off the Earth’ written in Hebrew on it.”

Wilson condemned the Iranian ballistic missile test earlier this week.
