“The Iran deal is defective at its core. If we do nothing, we know exactly what will happen. In just a short period of time, the world’s leading state sponsor of terror will be on the cusp of acquiring the world’s most dangerous weapons,” said Trump.
Trump reinstates U.S. sanctions on Iran
Today, Trump signed a presidential memorandum reinstating all U.S. nuclear sanctions on Iran.
According to him, his action “sends a critical message: The United States no longer makes empty threats.”
Moreover, the President said the U.S. “will be working with its allies to find a real, comprehensive, and lasting solution to the Iranian nuclear threat.”
Obama says Iran nuclear deal is working
Meanwhile, former President Barack Obama said the Iran nuclear deal is “working.” America’s allies in Europe, independent experts and the current U.S. Secretary of Defense share the same view.
In addition, Obama said the deal is in the best interest of the U.S. because it rolled back Iran’s nuclear program. It is a “model for what diplomacy can achieve.”
