Senator David Perdue: Iran Should Never Possess A Nuclear Weapon

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) on President Trump’s action to withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal:

“President Trump is right to take strong action against Iran. The goal should be that Iran never possess a nuclear weapon, period. Rather than punish Iran for its illicit behavior, President Obama’s weak agreement created a pathway for the rogue regime to develop a nuclear weapon due to its sunset clauses and inspection loopholes. In fact, this poorly-negotiated deal emboldened Iran to continue its ballistic missile program, support of terrorism, and aggression toward one of our closest allies, Israel. Earlier this year, I supported the President’s decision to decertify. It’s clearly time to hold Iran accountable for their dangerous behavior. President Trump is fully equipped to reengage with our allies across the globe, while putting America’s national security interests first.”
