WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) commended President Trump for announcing that the United States will withdraw from the Obama administration’s Iran nuclear deal.
“The Iran nuclear deal is one of the greatest failures of the Obama administration. It was a bad deal that threatened stability in the Middle East and endangered our ally Israel. We cannot trust a regime who chants ‘death to America’ and openly sponsors terrorist activities. President Trump’s decision sends a clear message that the United States won’t continue to bow down to foreign adversaries while they accumulate nuclear weapons. He has already proven this with North Korea. President Trump continues to show strong leadership as he restores America’s standing in the world.
America stands shoulder to shoulder with Israel. We can never allow Iran to develop weaponized, nuclear capability. This so-called ‘deal’ allows just that. It cannot stand.”
