Sen. Grassley releases statement on US withdraw from Iran nuclear deal

Posted: Updated:

Senator Grassley released the following statement today regarding the Trump administration's decision to withdraw the United States from the Iran nuclear deal.

“From the beginning, I’ve said the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration was an example of leading from behind on foreign policy. When negotiations began, the United States was in a position of strength because sanctions were hurting Iran. But President Obama, in his desire to get a deal, weakened America’s position by agreeing to one-sided concessions in return for worthless commitments from a deceitful and repressive regime. We now know Iran was driving full speed ahead in developing nuclear weapons. By pulling the U.S. out of this badly negotiated deal, President Trump is putting America back in a position of strength and showing the kind of global leadership the country needs as it approaches challenges, not only from Iran, but also from nations like North Korea, Russia and China.”
