US Withdraws From “Defective” Iran Nuclear Deal
President Trump bucked Iran, European allies and Congressional Democrats today to dump the Obama administration’s Iran Nuclear Deal. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu revealed the lies that were the foundation of the deal.

Congressional Democrats literally begged the President not to scrap the deal. European allies did the same, fully believing that the deal made them safer. But the deal reportedly only empowered Iran to ramp up its efforts, particularly after the United States sent them a big load of cash with which to do so.
“Perhaps the nuclear deal’s most unforgivable flaw is that its original architects chose to stand with and empower Iran’s mullahs over the Iranian people, whose opposition to their corrupt and criminal government continues to grow.” Sen Marco Rubio, R-FL.
If I had any doubts that the decision by @POTUS to end horrible Iran deal were right, just take note of the immediate and irrational reaction from @realDonaldTrump haters who Iactually thought Ayatollahs were just fine.

Nikki Haley on #IranDeal: “This was a terrible deal that only allowed Iran’s bad international conduct to worsen. We must never allow Iran to get nuclear weapons, and we must resist their support for terrorism that continues to threaten America and our allies.”#JCPOA #Iran

Senator Ted Cruz supported the President’s action:
What happens now?
Trump will now move to reimpose severe sanctions on Iran that were lifted in 2015 under the “deal.” Some of the sanctions will kick in after 90 days and the rest after 180 days, which will totally take the U.S. out of the agreement.

Europe is having a fit, Iran is having a fit, Democrats – including Obama- are having a fit.
“This was a horrible, one-sided deal that should have never ever been made…The Iran deal is defective at its core.” President Trump
