Throughout his entire speech, Trump stopped short of classifying the IRGC as a terror group. He announced plans to impose "tough sanctions".
The IRGC has hijacked large portions of Iran's economy and seized massive religious endowments to fund war and terror abroad.
Iran stand-off with Trump administration comes as the country's political power and influence in the region are reaching a peak. And it wields widespread influence in Iraq and Syria. And they enjoy strong relations with Russia and Turkey.
It has brought gas-rich Qatar into its political fold as the tiny Gulf nation with its Arab neighbors.
