Rep. Babin Applauds Trump Decision to Withdraw from Iran Deal

Washington, May 8, 2018

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Brian Babin (R-TX) released the following statement after President Trump’s announcement to withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal:

“President Trump made the right decision today by withdrawing from the flawed Iran Nuclear Deal. I have long said that if we allowed this agreement to continue, it would be the worst national security mistake in our lifetime. The Obama Administration made a grave misstep when they finalized this deal and awarded Iran with billions of dollars to use for terrorism purposes, fully aware of its shortcomings and at the peril of U.S. interests abroad. President Trump has taken the necessary step to rectify this mistake, and put us on a path to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear-armed power. While the current Administration tried to fix the agreement within its flawed structure, it’s clear that Tehran won’t cooperate and must experience the full burden of sanctions. I urge our European allies to follow suit and reinstate their own sanctions as well.”
