Pretty sure thats bs...obummer gave back money that originally belonged to iran with interest which had been frozen from banks and put into a trust fund...it really didn't come from u.s. taxpayers.
On the other hand it was likely used to further terrorism groups and build the missiles they shot at our military bases.
that's pretty much what happened.. and the most likely use.

Trump didn't say anything about taxpayers dollars in that article.
“The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration,” Trump said from the White House, referring to settlement money the U.S. paid to Iran in 2016.

During President Trump's address to the nation about the Iran missile strike on US forces, President Trump made a bold statement. Trump claimed that the missiles were paid for by the cash that Obama sent to the country in appeasement.

According to Fox News:
President Trump took direct aim at former President Barack Obama on Wednesday, blaming the last administration for giving Iran money that he claimed was then used by Tehran to pay for missiles that were aimed at U.S. troops in Iraq.

“The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration,” Trump said from the White House, referring to settlement money the U.S. paid to Iran in 2016.

...

In his remarks, he pointed the finger at the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal, or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) from which the U.S. withdrew in 2018. While supporters of the deal claimed it kept Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, Trump on Wednesday renewed his assertion that it emboldened Tehran.

“Iran's hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013, and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash,” he said. “Instead of saying thank you to the United States, they chanted 'Death to America.'”

President Trump did say that he would be willing to negotiate a new deal with Iran moving forward but also warned that new sanctions would be levied if the Iranians did not change their ways.

It's all semantics ... just like CNN and NBC can completely spin the same topic as FOX, and be 180 degrees apart. Trump worded this perfectly for the anti-Obama crowd ... funds WERE made available by the last administration. But as people are starting to see, those funds weren't US funds to begin with.

Let it Snow! is absolutely dead on ... it's ok to be wrong :bc:

Which payment do you want to debate as being US tax dollars? The 50+ billion one, or the 1.5 billion one? If it's the latter - you win. If it's the former, that money was ALLEGEDLY (multiple sources) frozen Iranian assets in multiple world banks that were unfrozen.

Now you're just being a moron, trying to stir shit up & antagonize. This is my last response to such idiocy. The only support I have for the release of that money is if it was air dropped without a parachute & Obama was strapped to the pallet.
