President Donald Trump on Monday signed an executive order imposing œhard-hitting new sanctions on Iran, which NBC News reported will deny Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and his office access to key financial resources. Iran slammed the sanctions, saying they signaled the end of diplomacy.
Meanwhile, investors are also awaiting a meeting between Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at this week™s G-20 summit in Japan amid the ongoing trade war between the two nations. A senior U.S. official reportedly said Trump is œcomfortable with any outcome from U.S.-Sino talks at the summit.
