WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) issued the following statement on President Trump designating Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO):

“Designating a foreign organization that participates in terrorism as a Foreign Terrorist Organization is a common sense and necessary move. The Iranian regime regularly uses IRGC to assist and fund terrorist activities. If terrorist organizations like Hezbollah, HAMAS, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad are labeled FTOs, the organization that regularly helps prop them up should be labeled one as well. This designation will assist in depriving Iran of resources used for terrorism and allow our government to treat them like the leading state sponsor of terror that they are. I stand with President Trump as he stands with our friends and stands up to our adversaries across the world.”
