Obama did NOT give Iran $150 billion: He returned *their own money* & unfroze *their assets*

Fact: In the 70s, #Iran paid the USA $400 million to buy weapons – which the USA never delivered b/c of the Iranian Revolution. The Iran Deal required the USA to finally pay back the $400M + $1.4B in interest. It was a valid debt. Don’t fall for Trump’s dishonest spin.

Fact: Obama didn’t give #Iran $150 billion US dollars. The USA had frozen $150B in overseas Iranian assets for leverage. After signing the Iran Deal, Obama released the hold on Iran’s accounts. Trump is lying when he spins the story to whip up his base (who don’t fact-check him).
