HYDE-SMITH PRAISES TRUMP WITHDRAWAL FROM IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today released the following statement in support of President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal, the 2015 Obama administration scheme that allowed Iran to maintain nuclear capabilities and receive relief from economic sanctions:
“President Trump is right to get out of the Iran Nuclear Deal and impose economic sanctions in order to force a more legitimate agreement to fight the threat Iran poses to our interests, our allies, and peace in the region. The Obama agreement allowed the regime in Tehran to benefit economically, while it maintained a nuclear program, supported global terrorism, and threatened the survival of Israel.
“I commend the President for his bold action. He has my full support, and I hope his leadership moves the international community to join us to find a better solution that is truly in the best interest of the United States and global security.”
