President Trump Pulls U.S. From Iran Nuclear Deal

President Trump announces the U.S. will pull out of what he has called ‘the single worst deal’ he has ever seen with the Iran Nuclear Accord, and will move forward with sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
During a press conference Tuesday, the president slammed the Iranian regime as the leading state sponsor of terror — supporting terrorist proxies in the Middle East, including the Taliban and al-Qaeda.
President Trump called the deal negotiated by his predecessor as “an embarrassment” to world security.
“The agreement was so poorly negotiated that even if Iran fully complies, the regime can still be on the verge of a nuclear breakout in just a short period of time,” said President Trump. “The deal’s sunset provisions are totally unacceptable — if I allowed this deal to stand, there would soon be a nuclear arms race in the Middle East, everyone would want their weapons ready by the time Iran had theirs, therefore, I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal.”

He concluded by saying the memorandum, signed Tuesday, will restart the “highest level” of economic sanctions on the Iranian regime.
The move comes despite calls from international leaders to renegotiate the accord rather than withdraw.
