Donald Trump's punitive measures against the Iranian government should be analysed in both domestic and foreign policy areas.
Trump began his fight against the Islamic Republic already with his 2016 campaign. The Iranian Chamber of Commerce, following its leader, assumed that Trump would be of good use to them, and that with his arrival, Europe would turn away from him and get closer to Iran, and as a result, the JCPOA would be maintained, which not only did not happen during Trump's presidency, but instead hundreds of European and Asian companies and banks left Iran. The reason for the withdrawal of these companies from Iran is the macroeconomic cooperation of these countries with the United States, which leads to their adherence and convergence with U.S. macroeconomic policies, and obviously, satisfying the United States is a priority for them, because western economic policies are primarily based on sustainable development and not short-term policies and temporary and baseless treatments. The amount of European economic exchanges with the United States is ten times that of Iran, so Europe, even Russia and China, respect international law on relations with the United States and take seriously the rules governing U.S. sanctions on companies that exchange economic deals with Iran.
