The other thing Fox didn't mention is that the 'cash' wasn't in US currency because that would have been illegal because of International sanctions that were in place on Iran. The final thing they don't mention is that the return of Iran's own money got 3 hostages being held in Iran freed and led to the JCPOA nuclear agreement.
    Shhhhh. Facts and reality just hurts their little brains. We're not talking about the sharpest sticks in the pile.
    Supporting Trump, but claiming you are against racism...is like eating a Banana Split every day, but claiming you are against ice cream.

    They would not be very happy with the DEM party either.

    Money is fungible so this is a non-point.

    ^----there's nothing here relevant to my post, or particularly coherent. You're dismissed.

    I don't think most Trump cultists really believe what he says. What drives these imbeciles towards Trump more than anything is their hatred of Democrats and liberals.

    Being a liar, a racist, and a traitor like Trump is STILL better than being a Democrat or a liberal. That is how these people think. Hatred consumes any rational thoughts that they might have.

    *shrug* what is the act of any economic sanction but the destruction of wealth of the target country? It's literally standard practice so the need to give them pallets of cash wasn't needed. If you want to have a conversation about the validity of economic sanctions at all then that could be a discussion but a different one from this one.

    Money is fungible. The money used by Iran for Boeing simply means that Iran has more money now to support its terrorism.
