(Worthy News) - The Trump administration is reportedly considering sanctions against an Iranian financial body set up to enable humanitarian trade with Europe, a measure that would likely end any possibility of European countries maintaining economic and humanitarian trade with Tehran.

  1. Do you see how these actions will further divide the West and isolate the US? Mark my words: America can't go it alone. Europe needs the US; the US needs Europe. If America falls, the West falls, too.
