Trump's executive order aims to to deny #Iran's Khamenei & other regime officials access to financial instruments within U.S. jurisdiction.
U.S. will continue to increase pressure on Tehran, Trump said, adding these sanctions could last years.
To indicate the severity of these new sanctions:

"U.S. Embassy: Iran’s Supreme Leader Worth $200 Billion"
Reuters reported back in 2013:

"Setad's holdings of real estate, corporate stakes and other assets total about $95 billion..."
#Iran's "National Development Fund," stacking tens of billions of dollars through the years from oil and gas exports (money belonging to the Iranian people), is believed to be personally controlled by Khamenei himself.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin:
Khamenei's office & all his property/assets are included in the new U.S. sanctions on #Iran.
-Washington will add Iran's foreign minister to sanctions list "later this week"
-New sanctions include "eight senior commanders of Navy, Aerospace, and Ground Forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC)" & more Iranian assets worth billions of dollars

U.S. President Donald Trump emphasizing pressures will continue against the regime ruling #Iran.
Official statement issued by the U.S. Treasury Department announcing today's new strong sanctions targeting the regime ruling #Iran, especially the economic empire controlled by supreme leader Ali Khamenei.
Important thread by @A_Jafarzadeh on today's new U.S. sanctions targeting the heart of the regime ruling #Iran, especially supreme leader Ali Khamenei.
On a personal note:

After shedding light on ties between #Iran's apologists/lobbyists & @JZarif, and being suspended following their orchestrated campaign against me, it is quite a feeling to hear Zarif will be added to U.S. sanctions later this week.

Any thoughts @tparsi?
New U.S. sanctions on #Iran's regime include:
-IRGC Navy chief Ali Reza Tangsiri
-IRGC Aerospace Force chief Amirali Hajizadeh
-IRGC Ground Forces chief Mohammad Pakpour
and IRGC Navy’s five naval districts.
An extensive read on #Iran's influence in the U.S.
The assets used to fund these entities should be confiscated & these circles should be closed down.
You know the new U.S. sanctions targeting the regime in #Iran are damning & very effective when you see a long list of Tehran apologists/lobbyists going the distance to say otherwise.

(Believe me, there are more...)
Why should @JZarif be sanctioned?
-has close relations with the terrorist-designated IRGC
-is quite fond of the terrorist-designated Lebanese Hezbollah
-always defends #Iran's policy of sending proxies/terrorists in support of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad
US sanctions should target #Iran's:

Gas industry
Ministry of Intelligence & Security
Judicial branch
Astan Quds Razavi
Mostazafan Foundation
Barakat Foundation
Alavi Foundation
15 Khordad Foundation
Kowthar Economic Org.
Qom Seminary (Hawza)
Islamic Development Organization
