Iran Wants Biden Admin to Pay $1 Trillion in ‘Reparation’ for U.S. Sanctions
Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif: “When we meet, we will raise compensation.”
Iran has told President Joe Biden to pay $1 trillion in damages caused by the U.S. sanctions as the White House gears up for nuclear talks with the regime.
The Biden administration can hand over the mind-boggling amount as “reparation” or “investment” in the Iranian economy, regime’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif demanded on Sunday.
Qatar’s state-funded broadcaster Al Jazeera reported the Iranian foreign minister’s demand:
Unilateral sanctions imposed by the United States inflicted $1 trillion worth of damage on Iran’s economy and Tehran expects compensation, its foreign minister said.
Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Sunday after the US takes action to restore Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers through lifting sanctions, Tehran will want to negotiate on the damages it has suffered.
“When we meet, we will raise compensation,” Zarif told the Iranian state-owned news network PressTV in an hour-long interview.
“Whether those compensations will take the form of reparation, or whether they take the form of investment, or whether they take the form of measures to prevent a repeat of what Trump did,” he said in reference to former US President Donald Trump. Trump unilaterally abandoned the nuclear deal in 2018 and imposed harsh, comprehensive sanctions that targeted all the sectors of Iran’s economy.
According to Zarif, Trump reimposed 800 sanctions that were put on Iran before the nuclear deal and imposed 800 new ones, all of which need to be lifted before the US can return to the deal.
Zarif, who personally negotiated the 2015 nuclear deal with then-Secretary of State John Kerry, has perhaps sensed the Biden administration’s desperation to restore the Obama-era agreement.
Even before the nuclear talks have started, the Biden White House has rolled back President Donald Trump’s enforcement of U.N. sanctions and arms embargo.
Because the Obama-Kerry nuclear deal gave Iran access to tens of billions of dollars in frozen bank assets in return for their vague promises, the Mullah regime now hopes for another fat signing amount for agreeing to a similar pact with President Biden.
Zafir is not a stranger to the newly-appointed Biden White House team. Along with Kerry, Robert Malley, both now senior officials in the new administration, held backchannel talks with him throughout the Trump tenure, recent media reports say.
“Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif met with multiple current Biden administration officials several years ago to ‘undermine’ former President Trump’s dealings with the country,” The New York Post reported on Monday. The secretive backchannel with Iran was “an apparent bid to undermine the Trump team and lay the groundwork for post-Trump relations,” The Washington Times noted.
Kerry, now Biden’s Climate czar, apparently advised Iranians to wait out the Trump presidency, previous media reports suggested.
The much-touted Iran deal did nothing to dismantle the regime’s vast underground and clandestine nuclear program. Tehran wants to enhance its ability to enrich uranium and ramp up its ballistic missile system capable of carrying nuclear warheads. Tehran’s billions of dollars bagged for signing the Obama-Kerry deal went into financing pro-Iranian terrorist groups from Yemen to Gaza.

Official Phone Log
SUBJ: PHONECON BTWN US PRES JOE BIDEN, HUNTER BIDEN AND IRANIAN FOREIGN MINISTER ZARIF
ZARIF: You need to give Iran one trillion dollars in cash! Or we shall destroy American with nuclear bombs!
HUNTER BIDEN: Dad, this is a good deal, you should listen.
JOE BIDEN: Yeah, so… OK, where did I… I know, uhm… C’mon man, the thing. What…. hold on…
ZARIF: Cash! On pallets. On Airplanes. Wednesday, if possible.
JOE BIDEN: I… I… OK, I know I had… dang.. where is…
HUNTER BIDEN: Dad! We can get 20% of this right off the top. 20%!
ZARIF: No! We agreed on 10%! Not 20!
HUNTER BIDEN: C’mon, man! That 10% was for me. The Big Guy gets his cut, too!
ZARIF: OK, an additional 10% for the “Big Guy,” too, but now we want one and a half trillions of dollars. And 10% now, and 10% after delivery.
JOE BIDEN: I just… where… have you seen my… c’mon, man! It was in my pocket…
HUNTER BIDEN: How about 1.9 trillion? That’s a better number. How ’bout it dad? 1.9 trillion!
JOE BIDEN: OK, yeah… maybe it’s… no, maybe I left it…
HUNTER BIDEN: He said OK, 1.9 trillion it is, and 10% for me, and 10% for the Big Guy. Deal?
ZARIF: I like the way you negotiate. You drive a difficult bargain, but, OK. Deal!
And freshman delegates with “benefits” for social unity and progress.
Biden should negotiate: Offer him $999.75 Billion, as an opening . . .
Iran is bluffing. Not a penny over $900 billion.
Wrong – Biden offers $2 trillion & deal is done
Pallots on standby.
Well certainly wouldn’t put it past JoeBama to give them a trillion, or at least a few billion.
… while the GOP stands there, soiling themselves in fear, doing nothing.
That’s not fair! Our thoughtful and resolute Republican leaders will dig in their heels and fight like hell to keep the bribe – er, just compensation – under $900 billion.
They will spend the other $100 billion sending out fundraising letters crowing about their great success at preventing Biden from wasting a trillion dollars of taxpayer money.
They will also claim that this achievement proves that the Republican party is stronger without Trump.
Biden will not pay a dime – unless they also allow him to apologize on national TV and list all the ways America is evil. Barry may even join him in hopes for a 2nd Nobel Prize.
I wonder how Trump would reply to Iran. Any suggestions?
Promise them half a dozen ICBMs which have already been launched, others to be delivered over time, until they beg for deliveries to be stopped.
It no longer matters. He’s no longer president.
I see an envelope addressed to Iran, full of feces.
President Trump would have said: GUESS WHICH FINGER I’M HOLDING UP !!
Sounds like John Kerry cut a deal. Who benefits?
John Carrie. Hunter Biden.
And crack dealers and pimps across America.
10% for the Big man, 10% for Ms. Biden 10% each for Hunter, Beau, Ashley and Naomi.
If dead people can vote, they can also collect graft. Being Bidens, they will allow Iran to keep 40%.
If you have to ask the question, then you have never heard of John Kerry and his 50 years of shameless self-promotion and US degradation.
Others? The Big Guy, and probably half of the EU commissars.
For God’s sake, make it stop. I don’t know how long I can handle the daily madness. The fact that Iran can even make this “demand” tell me how far from reality we have gone in one month.
people in hell want icewater
so what are the mullahs going to do that they aren’t doing already when we(hopefully)tell them to pound sand?
I would really like to them delivered to Hell. It is incredible that the West has been putting up with Iran so long.
And for whatever reason, the Alzheimer’s Patient’s Administration will think this is a good deal.
What is a 10% kickback on one trillion? Let’s see, one tenth of a thousand billion is 100 billion… am I close?? Hunter can buy more coke.. What could go wrong?
“You’ll get nothing – and like it!”
Bonus points for working in the “Caddyshack” reference. 😉
keep him away from sheila jackson lee, they might get into a fight about who gets the money first
Look at the COVID Relief Bill – it’s probably already in there.
Why was Ashli Babbitt killed?
This is Iran’s normal attempt to move the Overton Window. Start with a trillion dollar demand, negotiate down. The US position under Trump was always ‘No.’ (as it should be) The Biden admin has already said they’re going to reduce sanctions without getting anything from it (like the release of their new US hostages, which they’ve been collecting like baseball cards), so expect another planeload of cash headed that way soon, and a prompt betrayal of any agreement Iran makes.
Dear Zarif: “Suck a cock”
How bout you take Obama and Biden, we keep the cash?
Scary part is that Joe is probably writing the check as we speak. He wants us to adopt Sharia.
LOL. The Iranians certainly know their useful idiots on the AMerican left all too well.
That’s a few more pallets of cold, hard cash (Euros … but pretty close to real cash) than Barky whisked over to Tehran in the middle of the night.
My starting positions would be: “You want nuclear bombs? I’ll give you nuclear bombs.”
It’s time to find out what the secret meetings with John Kerry have been about for the last 4 years. Probably been making all sorts of this type of promise.
Iran should refuse worthless green backs.
Iran needs to demand payment in gold.
You have to have an economy that was doing something BEFORE sanctions. Further, we don’t want to by the country which has a GDP of $600 B in 2012 which tanked by a factor of about 33% in one year thanks to the wonderful leadership in Iran.
Give up your nuclear ambitions and join the people of the peaceful world instead of trying to get the 12th Imam to return.
How about you go f**k yourself instead Iran! Greedy little psychopaths!
Biden to DOCTOR Jill – how many pallets will that take?
Sure, Iran. And I want a pony.
My guess is Barry will tell him to pay at least some of it
Bankrupting a country is tough business
Biden is actually stupid enough to give them what they want.
Funny how they watch a little American television and quickly pick up on the leftist grift buzz words like “reparation”
Biden: Cash or check Mr Zarif??
Well, well, well. “JObama Biden’s” (see the Branco Cartoon, https://patriotpost.us/cartoons/29400 ) Cloward-Piven Strategy shows up early in this administration. But, I expected nothing less: Look at the revolving door of miscreants that his former boss put back into the White House.
I’ve always had a real curt response to stupid demands, whether from insolent teenagers or random idiots: “Defecate in one hand and ‘want in the other.’ Then see which one fills (up) first.”
Isn’t TREASON considered to be aiding and abetting (helping) the enemy? It seems to me I remember a threat from Iran at the end of Trump’s term in office, that Trump would be dead in a couple of weeks. I know JObama Biden and the Democrats have no love for Trump, but it would seem to me that the giving financial aid to a sworn enemy of the country, fills the requirements. As if paying a ransom of $1,000,000 just over 4 years ago wasn’t enough….
And, BTW, to answer jimincalif, $1 Trillion Dollars is 1 Million X 1 Million Dollars. So if we could actually stack $1,000,000 on a pallet, it would take 1000 trips with 1,000 pallets of $1,000,000 each to actually deliver that amount of cash.
I’m sure the tough negotiating team that Jacko sends will be able to knock that absurd demand down to $995-million, to the wild cheering of their TV chuckleheads and copy-paste media clerks.
The weird beards of Iran are in no position to negotiate and could get lit up big time should they continue with developing nuclear weapons!
