Trump's move puts more economic pressure on a fragile Iran economy

NY Times:

Angry and Divided, Iran Fears Deeper Crisis as Deal Ends

Iran’s economy was already in free fall. Now the lifeline offered by a deal that was supposed to lift barriers to the West is coming apart, too.
The people of Iran were already angry with the leaders for their squandering the Obama windfall on their foreign adventures rather than dealing with the hardships of the people of Iran caused by the attempts to prop up the Syrian regime and the backing of rebels in Yemen as well as groups like Hamas.  The country's currency is in steep decline and could reach Venezuelan proportions if the regime continues its current policies. 

Trump is right to take advantage of this weakness by a hostile regime that hates the US and its allies in the region.
