Obama Paid Iran Much More Than Trump Wants for the Wall

RUSH: President Trump is having a hell of a time getting the swamp to appropriate 15 to $20 billion to build the border wall. However, Obama was able to make a deal with terrorist nuclear-building Iran that involved him secretly sending them as much as $33.6 billion. We’ve thought it was a billion and a half with cash on pallets. It’s much more than that.

Now, where did that money come from in the budget? Here are the details the story from back in 2016.

“Between January 2014 and July 2015, when the Obama administration was hammering out the final details of the nuclear accord, Iran was paid $700 million every month from funds that had previously been frozen by U.S. sanctions. A total of $11.9 billion was ultimately paid to Iran, but the details surrounding these payments remain shrouded in mystery, according to Mark Dubowitz, executive director at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies,” which is a solid group.

So by the time it was all said and done, we paid Iran $33.6 billion dollars, in addition to whatever other concessions there were. And yet Trump can’t find 15 to $20 billion to get the wall bit from the swamp
