Republican hawks are planning to introduce legislation later this month that would force President Trump to take a harder approach to Iran, out of fear that the president is "going soft" on them, Politico's Eliana Johnson reports.
The big picture: New sanctions are expected to be announced later today, and these Republicans "expect that Trump will disappoint them," Johnson writes. The legislation, which will reportedly be introduced by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and cosponsored by Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), would pressure Trump into cutting off Iranian banks' access to the global banking network, Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT).
