Trump designated Iran Revolutionary Guard as "terrorist organization"

US President Donald Trump said on Monday that the United States had designated Iran's Revolutionary Guards a "foreign terrorist organization."

"The Iran Revolutionary Guard is not only a financier of terrorism but also an active element," Trump said in a press statement on Monday adding "We will continue financial pressure on Iran, which supports terrorist activity."

Trump added, "We will continue economic pressure on Iran because it supports terrorist activities."

The United States had already listed dozens of entities and individuals on black lists for belonging to the Revolutionary Guard, but did not include the entire force on those lists. This is the first time that Washington officially classifies a military force in another country as a terrorist group.
