Trump decertified Iran nuclear deal
President Trump decertified Iran nuclear deal today in a major policy shift from the pacifist Obama who gave 400 million and then another 1.3 billion to the terrorist sponsoring country.
Trump announced the change in U.S. policy in a speech where he detailed a more aggressive (not hard to do after Obama bowing to them) approach to Iran over its nuclear and ballistic missile programs and its support for terrorist groups in the Middle East.
He accused Iran of “not living up to the spirit” of the nuclear agreement and said his goal is to ensure Tehran never obtains a nuclear weapon.
He singled out Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps for sanctions and delivered a blistering critique of Tehran, which he accused of destabilizing actions in Syria, Yemen and Iraq.
“We will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence more terror and the very real threat of Iran’s nuclear breakout” Trump said.
Trump’s tough remarks drew praise from Israel, Iran is the biggest threat to Israel and they lived in fear with the pacifist Obama. European allies who are a bunch of Socialist pacifist criticized the remarks as expected.
The policy change is in line with Trump’s “Make America Great Again” approach to international agreements which has led to withdrawal of the awful Paris climate accord and the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade talks and renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in response to the Trump de-certification of Iran nuclear deal that Tehran was committed to the deal and accused Trump of making baseless accusations.
“The Iranian nation has not and will never bow to any foreign pressure, he said. “Iran and the deal are stronger than ever.”
Trump warned that if “we are not able to reach a solution working with Congress and our allies, then the agreement will be terminated.”
“We’ll see what happens over the next short period of time and I can do that instantaneously,” he told reporters when asked why he did not choose to scrap the deal now.
The Trump administration designated the entire Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps under an executive order targeting terrorists. The administration stopped short of labeling the group a Foreign Terrorist Organization, a list maintained by the State Department.
If it is not by now abundantly clear to the world’s thugs and dictators there is a new sheriff in town. No longer is Obama signing Iran nuclear deal and traveling the world bowing to these terrorist and sponsors of terror.
