Iran conducted its first ballistic missile test under Donald Trump's presidency, in yet another apparent violation of a United Nations resolution, U.S. officials told Fox News exclusively on Monday.

The launch occurred at a well-known test site outside Semnan, about 140 miles east of Tehran, on Sunday.

Iran didn't even have to worry about paying off the fuel bill on the credit card. The card was in our name.

Iran still has 50 - 100 billion accessible. I hope Trump can put a stop to that transfer.

Good job, Barry.

Perhaps Trumps first public international 'test'.

You know the Russia/Syria/Iran axis countries will be testing the novice US president.

And lookie here, the proof came from the US intelligence community, the same intelligence community Trump Twitter-bashed for their analysis of Russia's DNC hack.

423-2: House Passes Bill Targeting Iran’s Ballistic Missile Program
October 27, 2017 – The House of Representatives on Thursday passed with overwhelming support bipartisan sanctions legislation targeting Iran’s ballistic missiles, which has provided Tehran with sophisticated S-300 surface-to-air missiles. The bill includes provisions that could ensnare Russia.
Quote:
The Iran Ballistic Missiles and International Sanctions Enforcement Act (H.R. 1698) also, for the first time, mandates restrictions on entry into the U.S. of those found to be supplying or financing the missile program. It passed in the House by a vote of 423 to 2, with only Republican libertarian Reps. Thomas Massie of Kentucky and John Duncan of Tennessee opposing. The latest congressional swipe at Iran came on the heels of Wednesday’s passage of three bills targeting Hezbollah, Iran’s Shi’ite proxy in Lebanon. “These sanctions will squeeze Iranian and foreign companies, banks and individuals that support the Iranian regime’s illicit weapons programs,” said House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), the bill’s chief sponsor.

Committee member Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) said after the vote, “We sent a strong message to Iran and to those individuals and financial institutions that support its dangerous weapons programs: the days of America standing by and allowing you to build up an arsenal that threatens our families and our allies are over.” H.R. 1698 requires the president to impose sanctions against Iranian government agencies involved in ballistic missile development, but also against foreign government agencies, entities or individuals that supply or finance such efforts. Also targeted for sanctions are foreign entities that transfer goods or technology that contribute to Iran’s ability to develop ballistic missiles, including “destabilizing numbers and types of advanced conventional weapons.”

The text explains that the term “destabilizing numbers and types of advanced conventional weapons … includes the S-300 and S-400 missile defense systems.” Moscow for five years maintained a voluntary ban on sale of the S-300 systems to Iran, but President Vladimir Putin lifted it in an April 2015 decree, arguing the embargo was no longer needed given progress in international nuclear negotiations (which delivered the controversial deal three months later).

The systems are designed to protect military bases and infrastructure against attack by enemy aircraft, and in mid-2016, Iran deployed newly-acquired S-300s at a key underground nuclear facility. After it did so, the Obama White House said the move was “objectionable” but called the systems “defensive in nature.” Last month the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) displayed S-300 systems at a military parade in central Tehran marking the 37th anniversary of the 1980s Iran-Iraq war.
