Barack Obama spent eight years trying to destroy America.
One decision stands out above all the rest.
And now Donald Trump is about to make him pay the ultimate price.
Barack Obama appeased the terrorist supporting regime in Iran with the nuclear deal.
It allows Iran to one day acquire a nuclear weapon.
Trump campaigned on ending what he called “the worst deal” in American history.
And now that he’s nominated Mike Pompeo to be Secretary of State and tapped John Bolton as National Security Advisor, Trump has the team in place to make that happen.
Trump is approaching the May 12 deadline to effectively withdraw from the deal, and leaders around the world are expecting him to do just that.
The Hill reports:
“Dark clouds are forming over the Iran nuclear deal as the calendar marches toward a May 12 deadline set by President Trump to improve the accord or see the United States effectively withdraw from it.
When Trump extended Iran’s sanctions relief in January, he pledged it would be the last time unless European allies agree to a supplemental deal to fix what the president sees as the fundamental problems with the nuclear pact negotiated by the Obama administration.
And while negotiations with the Europeans are ongoing, hopes for a solution are increasingly fading.
“Every single day I have a new percentage about whether we’re going to get a new deal. Today is 51/49 no deal,” said Behnam Ben Taleblu, a research fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies who favors fixing the deal instead of scrapping it.”
The agreement was Obama’s signature “legacy” achievement in foreign policy.
Unfortunately Obama put America’s national security last when he agreed to the deal.
Trump initially recertified the deal last spring because his advisors boxed him in.
But last fall, Trump announced he was decertifying the deal.
The administration has said it will remain in the deal if its partners agree to strengthen the agreement in order to clamp down on Iran’s weapons program.
Those hopes are fading as the rest of the world would rather do business with Iran than clamp down on a rogue regime’s nuclear program.
So Trump is left with no choice.
The President must pull out of the deal.
Trump was elected to clean up Barack Obama’s mess.
That starts with preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
