Targeted: Barack Obama & Democrats in CongressAbout: Iran
Donald Trump falsely claimed that President Obama and the Democratic Party "gave Iran 150 [sic] billion dollars" and then lashed out at current Democrats of being unwilling to spend $5 billion dollars on his border wall. In reality, the Obama Administration unfroze Iranian assets that were under US and international sanctions and only did so after Iran proved it was complying with the nuclear agreement they signed.
