Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement after the Trump administration announced new sanctions against Iran:

"The president said we were putting Iran on notice, and I'm glad to see he's as good as his word. Iran's ayatollahs will stop their provocations only if the U.S. shows strength and resolve. These sanctions are long overdue, and they're sending the right message to the regime in Tehran: Cease and desist immediately."
