President Trump on Saturday hinted the pallets of cash the United States paid to Iran — some $1.8 Billion — during the Obama administration might not have been to secure the nuclear deal at all.
Trump’s comments came during a rally in West Virgina on Saturday night. He said the cash payment to Iran could have been a ransom for “something else.”
Thomas Paine labeled the same payment ransom on Wedbesday in a promo video for his upcoming book “Paine: How We Dismantled the FBI In Our Pajamas.” The book comes out on Oct. 29.
Here is that Tweet.
