President Joe Biden’s latest decision is leaving Republicans furious, with many of them accusing the president of funding terrorism.

Reports emerged on Thursday that President Biden has allowed the Islamic Republic of Iran access to more than $10 billion in electricity revenues. The decision, which comes just a few weeks after Iran-backed Terror Organization Hamas attacked Israel, drew sharp criticism from Republicans.


Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) slammed the administration for defying all expectations. The lawmaker noted that Iran is the world’s largest state sponsor of terror organizations and as such, any money given to Iran will likely be used to fund terror acts.


“You just can’t seem to make it up and this administration defies all expectations,” Blackburn said. “They gave six billion dollars to Iran and now we hear they’re going to let go another $10 billion. You give Iran a dollar, what do they do with it? They enrich uranium just below the level needed for a nuclear warhead or they use it to fund terrorism. They are the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism… That is what they do with their money.”
Mike Pompeo, former U.S. Secretary of State under the Trump administration maintained that giving Iran the $10 billion after the Oct. 7 Hamas massacre is beyond reckless and rewarding terrorism. Pompeo urged the Biden administration to rescind the decision immediately.


Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis said reckless and dangerous does not even begin to describe the wreckage the Biden administration is leaving behind.


“Joe Biden’s administration gifted another sanctions waiver for Iran to access $10 billion – the same regime underwriting the horrific Hamas attack on Israel on October 7th that Israel is courageously fighting, with American and Israeli hostages still being held,” DeSantis wrote on X. “Add this on top of the $6 billion ransom payment the Biden administration gave Iran on 9/11 and the lax oil sanctions keeping the mullahs flush with cash from China. All the while, Iran continues to provide safe harbor to the leader of Al Qaeda, its proxies attack U.S. forces, and they hire hitmen to attempt to abduct or assassinate former U.S. officials and dissidents.”
Richard Goldberg, a former Trump administration official and senior adviser at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD), said the decision to hand Iran $10 billion five weeks after Hamas’ attack on Israel makes no sense.
“Congress rightfully pushed to lock down the $6 billion in Qatar; it should move quickly to lock down this $10 billion too,” Goldberg said.
