With just days before the May 12th deadline to re-certify the Iran nuclear deal, President Trump announced to the world that the United States would withdraw from the deal altogether. If Trump’s goal was to make the U.S. and its allies less safe, potentially destabilize the Middle East and ignite a nuclear arms race; go ahead and find an aircraft carrier to hang that “Mission Accomplished” banner now!
On Friday, President Trump declared he would decertify the Iran nuclear deal. Unfortunately, his reasoning is grounded in falsehoods and omissions. The reality is that Trump is willing to further destabilize the world stage in order to throw a slab of red meat to his base while continuing to erase his predecessor’s legacy.
