US slams new sanctions targeting Iran’s supreme leader


US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order imposing hard hitting new sanctions on Iran, including against Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

This is coming days after Tehran shot down an unmanned American drone in the Gulf.

Trump said the additional sanctions were in response to the shooting down of the US drone and “many other things”.

He added that they would “continue to increase pressure on Tehran”, saying “never can Iran have a nuclear weapon”.

The president said depending on Iran’s response, the sanctions could end tomorrow or it “can also be years from now.”
