"The U.S. has routinely offered to help the Iranian people in times of need. This time should be no different."
Does this administration have, at last, no decency at all?
THIS IS PATHETIC! NOT ON TRUMP’S PART, BUT ON THESE HYPOCRITE DEMOC-RATS! The United States just gave Iran $1.7 Billion dollars under the Obama Administration, what did they do with it? Not to mention Iran just threw Israel’s offer of aid right back in their face, so if Israel’s aid is not good enough, then neither is ours.
Personally, when I see people hurting, especially after a national disaster, my desire is to stop playing politics and start playing human being. Tornadoes, typhoons, floods, and earthquakes result in pain and suffering to friends and enemies alike. Why not just do whatever we can to stop the suffering?
The United States did not “give” Iran anything. The money that you refer to was their money, which had been “frozen” and it was released to them!
… or humanity even.
