Trump Announces U.S. Will Pull Out Of Iran Nuclear Deal

Trump said Iran has not lived up to the spirit of the deal, and that the current deal allows the regime to test weapons.

Trump pulls U.S. from Iran deal.

President Donald Trump honored a major campaign promise on Tuesday and announced that the United States will pull out of the nuclear deal with Iran, according to Bloomberg.

Trump not only blasted the brazen “bloody ambitions” of Iran, he said when he makes a promise, the world will know that he means business.

“The United States no longer makes empty threats. When I make promises, I keep them,” Trump charged.

“This was a horrible one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made,” he said. “It didn’t bring calm, it didn’t bring peace, and it never will.”

The president vowed numerous times to pull the U.S. from the disastrous deal, and he has honored that promise.

During brief remarks at the White House, Trump also announced that the U.S. will reimpose the sanctions on Iran that were initially waived because of the awful deal, which was negotiated by former President Barack Obama.

There will be a 90 to 180-day wind-down period will allow the U.S. to fully implement the sanctions on the JCPOA, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the highly controversial deal Obama unilaterally signed in 2015.

During his remarks, Trump slammed Iran for continuing to enrich its nuclear capabilities while funding and supporting terrorism in the region. The president slammed Obama for allowing a nation that chants “death to America” to inch toward possessing nuclear capabilities.

Trump said the deal Obama agreed to was an embarrassment not only to him, but to all Americans and citizens across the world.

“It didn’t bring calm, it didn’t bring peace. And it never will.” Trump said.

Trump said the Obama administration sending cash pallets and billions of dollars to the “murderous regime” was a complete embarrassment to the world.

“A constructive deal could easily have been struck at the time. But it wasn’t,” Trump said. “At the heart of the Iran deal was a giant fiction that a murderous regime desired only a peaceful nuclear energy program.”

The president said Iran is going to insult and threaten the U.S. because of the deal, but said he doesn’t blame them for not wanting to give up the great deal Obama gave them.

When leaving the room on Tuesday, Trump looked at a reporter, pointed his finger, and said: “this will make America safer.”
