BREAKING: Trump Plans to Pull US From Iran Deal That Prevents Nuclear War
Trump wants Iran and the United States to burn
One of Obama’s bigger problems was his inability to successfully convey the inner details of his policies to both the public and media. For example, not many people were informed what the Affordable Care Act would specifically do, allowing Republicans to take advantage and spew their propaganda about it creating “death panels” amongst a plethora of other falsehoods.
The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or Iran Deal, was unfortunately another instance of the former President failing to educate everyone as to why it was important for it to happen, once again giving the GOP an opportunity to smear it at every corner. Ask the general populace what the Iran Deal is, and one will probably get answers equivalent to helping the Iranian nuclear program and giving Iran millions of dollars.
But the workings of it are much different than that, making it all the more painful that the current President, Donald Trump, is so adamant on getting rid of it. In a breaking report from The Washington Post, Trump will be announcing his initiative to pull the United States out of the Iran Nuclear Deal.
Trump supposedly thinks that the deal is not in the best interests of the U.S., and will work to start the de-certification process. If that sounds familiar, it is because it is the exact same rhetoric he used when deciding to pull the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord. And just like with Paris, it appears the President has no idea what this agreement is about.
To go into the general details, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action entails that: one, United Nations’ sanctions on Iran’s nuclear program are removed in exchange for the government rolling back the development of a nuclear weapon over 15 years, and two, nearly $50 billion in freezed assets are returned to the country to help it recover economically so long as the UN can verify the nuclear program every year. On top of that, the deal gained international support through approvals from Germany, China, France, the United Kingdom, and Russia.
Members of Trump’s own Cabinet have spoken against pulling the US from the Iran Deal. Back in April 2017, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stated that Iran was complying with the agreement while, just two days ago, Secretary of Defense James Mattis advocated staying with the deal.
But of course, who can expect this imbecile in charge of the country to listen to anything. If the US pulls out of the Iran Deal, there is a good chance Iran will start to rebuild its nuclear weapon program, thereby pushing the world closer to nuclear war.
