RNC: Biden’s Appeasement Emboldened Iran

America and our allies are less safe because of Biden’s weakness towards Iran.

By the Republican National Committee



  • Last month, the Biden administration released $6 billion in ransom to Iran in a lopsided prisoner exchange.
    • The administration knew there was a “high risk” doing so could boost Hamas, but did it anyway.
    • Despite the Biden administration’s claim that the funds would be restricted to humanitarian use, money is fungible, with the Iranian president declaring “authority” over the funds and saying they would be spent “wherever we need it.”
    • Following this weekend’s brutal Hamas terror attack in Israel, the administration has yet to refreeze these Iranian funds.
  • Since Biden took office, his administration has relaxed oil sanctions enforcement and allowed Iran to profit on $80 billion in illicit oil sales, a five-year high for the largest state sponsor of terror.
  • Meanwhile, Biden’s handpicked choice for special envoy to Iran, Rob Malley, is under investigation for mishandling classified documents and his alleged involvement in an Iran-backed spy campaign.
    • In 2010, Malley called it “a mistake to only think of [Hezbollah and Hamas] in their terrorist violence dimension … [Hamas] has a charity organization, a social branch … there’s so much misinformation about them.”


  • Biden has spent his presidency tripping over himself to restore the Obama-era Iran deal, providing the world’s largest state sponsor of terror with concession after concession.
    • In an effort to entice Iran to rejoin the nuclear deal, the State Department announced it was waiving sanctions on Iran’s “civilian” nuclear program.
    • Biden failed to enforce sanctions that prohibit Iranian oil imports into China.
    • The administration continued to work with Russia on the nuclear deal during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
  • Iran’s “breakout time"— the time needed to produce enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon — is now at "zero.”
  • As Biden bent over backwards for Iran, our enemies openly bragged about how great the Iran Nuclear Deal is for them.
    • Russia’s lead negotiator in the talks, Mikhail Ulyanov, said “Iran got much more than it could expect” in negotiations.
  • Through his desperation to rejoin the deal, Biden ignored our closest ally in the region, Israel, who raised serious concerns over the U.S. reentering the deal.
  • Last December, Biden finally said the deal is “dead,” but stressed that the U.S. won’t formally announce it.
  • Biden falsely blamed the previous Republican administration for the rise in Iran’s nuclear power rather than his own policies.
    • According to one U.N. watchdog, Iran has been enriching large amounts of uranium and has been withholding footage of its monitoring in nuclear sites since 2021.
