On Friday, President Trump announced that he was decertifying the Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran, citing the country’s multiple violations of the agreement.
The president sharply criticized the current dictatorship of Iran, which he called a “radical regime” that had “raided the wealth of one of the world’s oldest and most vibrant nations.”

President Trump has been highly critical of Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran, which he described as “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into,” and has threatened to completely pull out of the deal.
“We will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence, more terror, and the very real threat of Iran’s nuclear breakthrough,” said Trump, also adding, “The regime’s two favorite chants are ‘Death to America’ and ‘Death to Israel.’”

President Trump also announced plans to impose sanctions on Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, calling it “the Iranian supreme leader’s corrupt personal terror force and militia,” and noted that Iran “remains the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.”
