In a story largely ignored by the Leftist media, the Trump administration has compelled German company Krempel to stop selling rocket parts to Iran. The move comes after U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell ratcheted up the diplomatic pressure after the company’s products were found to be used in Syria by President Bashar Assad working in cooperation with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps to wage chemical warfare against civilians. Krempel had previously doubled down on the legality of its business deals with Iran. This is one more example of American superiority and influence abroad that had been missing entirely during the Obama administration.

On Thursday, in another victory for the Trump Administration, the German company Krempel, whose material was utilized in Iranian rockets that forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad used to gas 21 adults and children, announced it would not deliver material to the Iranian government any more.
As The Jerusalem Post notes, U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell has been instrumental in convincing German companies to follow Trump’s lead and separate from Iran. He stated, “Corporations realize that doing business with Iran means funding the IRGC’s terror strategy.”
Krempel spokesman Rainer Westermann said, “Since several months ago, Krempel no longer delivers goods to Iran.” Krempel makes electronic press boards used in the motors of rockets.
