President Trump pulled out of Barack Obama’s Iranian nuclear deal yesterday, claiming the agreement was “horrrible.”
Why couldn’t you rubes simply vote for Hillary Clinton and let the friendly terrorists keep our money?
President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the landmark nuclear accord with Iran on Tuesday, abruptly restoring harsh sanctions in the most consequential foreign policy action of his presidency. He declared he was making the world safer, but he also deepened his isolation on the world stage and revived doubts about American credibility.
The 2015 agreement, which was negotiated by the Obama administration and included Germany, France and Britain, had lifted most U.S. and international economic sanctions against Iran. In exchange, Iran agreed to restrictions on its nuclear program, making it impossible to produce a bomb and establishing rigorous inspections.
But Trump, a severe critic of the deal dating back to his presidential campaign, said in a televised address from the White House that it was “defective at its core.”
Reading this AP story – particularly the first two paragraphs above – one would think it was an opinion piece, instead of a news item. You see, the president cannot simply withdraw from the deal because it gives a terrorist state everything it desires; no, there has to be another reason, like deepening isolation and American credibility.
Journalism is dead. Thankfully, so is the Iran deal.
