Well, it is little wonder President Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal with Iran. Footage emerged Tuesday of the Iran Parliament burning an American flag and chanting "Death to America". The lawmakers not only burned an American flag but they burned a paper that represented the deal with the Obama administration.

Immediately after pulling out of the deal, President Trump imposed sanctions on Iran. At the same time, Iran president Hassan Rouhani vowed the country will enrich uranium "more than before" if negotiations+ fail. Maybe they forgot who has the "biggest button". President Rouhani said there was a "short time" to negotiate with the countries who are still committed to the multinational nuclear deal.
"If we achieve the deal’s goals in cooperation with other members of the deal, it will remain in place… By exiting the deal, America has officially undermined its commitment to an international treaty," Rouhani said. "I have ordered Iran’s atomic organization that whenever it is needed, we will start enriching uranium more than before." Trump called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) a "great embarrassment".

President Trump said of the deal, "The Iran deal is defective at its core. If we do nothing, we know exactly what will happen. In just a short period of time, the world’s leading state sponsor of terror will be on the cusp of acquiring the world’s most dangerous weapon. Therefore, I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal."
Theresa May expressed "regret and concern" over Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the deal and condemned the withdrawal in a joint statement with leaders from Germany and France. Iranian politicians have used the phrase "Death to America" since its 1979 Islamic revolution. The 2015 Obama-era deal imposed restrictions on its nuclear program in return for lifting both U.S. and international sanctions. The deal came with time limits and left out Iran's ballistic missile program and its regional policies in abroad in countries like Syria.
