Trump’s State Department Claims “Iran Compliant With Nuclear Deal”; Extending Obama’s Sanction Relief
Barack Hussein Obama allowed terrorist Iran to build nuclear weapons, and now the Trump administration is continuing to do exactly the same as Obama.
With a new White House, many have wondered about the fate of the 2015 nuclear agreement made between the Obama administration and Iran.
The Trump administration’s stance on the agreement became a little clearer on Tuesday [as in they are the same as Obama] when the administration notified Congress that Iran is “complying with the terms of the agreement”, and that the United States would therefore extend the sanctions relief granted to Iran as part of that agreement.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, in a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan, wrote that Iran remained compliant with the agreement, but that the administration was concerned about Tehran’s support for terrorism and is reviewing whether to continue suspending sanctions, as required under the deal.
Congress mandated that the State Department must notify it every 90 days about Iran’s compliance with its nuclear obligations. Tuesday’s letter was the first such notification by the Trump administration.
