Donald Trump says Sudan will be removed from the terrorism list

President Donald Trump on Monday said Sudan would be removed from the US list of state sponsors of terrorism if it follows through on its pledge to pay $335 million to American terror victims and their families.

This move would open the door for the African country to get international loans and aid to revive its battered economy and rescue the country’s transition to democracy.

The announcement, just two weeks ahead of the US presidential election, also comes as the Trump administration works to get other Arab countries, such as Sudan, to join the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain’s recent recognition of Israel.

Trump tweeted: “GREAT news! The new government of Sudan, which is making great progress, agreed to pay $335 MILLION to US terror victims and families. Once deposited, I will lift Sudan from the State Sponsors of Terrorism list. At long last, JUSTICE for the American people and BIG step for Sudan!”
