VIDEO: Trump Announces Withdrawal From Iran Nuclear Agreement

“We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanction,” said Trump. “Any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons could also be strongly sanctioned by the United States.”

US President Donald Trump has announced that the US will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.

Sanctions will also be re-imposed.

In his remarks, Trump said “We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanction. Any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons could also be strongly sanctioned by the United States.”

Added Trump, “Today’s action sends a critical message. The United States no longer makes empty threats. When I make promises, I keep them. As we exit the Iran deal, we will be working with our allies to find a real, comprehensive, and lasting solution to the Iranian threat.”

Many had criticized the agreement as failing to stop Iran’s support of terrorist organizations, and for allowing them to continue testing missiles and being able to resume progress towards a nuclear program in less than a decade. Others have said the agreement made tangible progress towards slowing Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

The deal also gave Iran a massive amount of money, including tons of cash that many say was spent on weapons.
