Trump’s announced on Tuesday that the US would withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal.
Democrats call Trump's withdrawal from Iran; 'Senseless, disturbing and dangerous'!
They warned of another nuclear crisis with possible greater tensions in the Middle East, while Republicans applauded his decision to walk away from the agreement.
President Donald Trump told the nation, "When I make promises, I keep them."
Nancy Pelosi said in a statement that Trump's decision would cost the U.S. "its international credibility and the power of our voice at the table."
“The president’s decision to abdicate American leadership during a critical moment in our effort to advance a denuclearization agreement with North Korea is particularly senseless, disturbing and dangerous," Pelosi said.

Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia said the president’s actions would create a “new global nuclear crisis” as the U.S. seeks to address one with North Korea.
Democratic opponents of the original Iran deal such as Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey, called it a “grave mistake” for the U.S. to walk away from the agreement “without a plan for ensuring that Iran does not restart its nuclear weapon program, without a strategy for countering Iran’s dangerous non-nuclear activities, and without our allies and partners.”
Other Democrats said Trump's move was merely part of a campaign to erase Obama’s legacy.
“The president's willingness to shatter the international consensus, forged over years of arduous negotiations, on how to constrain Iran's nuclear program only makes sense as part of a campaign to erase his predecessor's legacy, regardless of the consequences to our national security,” said Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.

GOP lawmakers released statements after the president spoke and described the Iran agreement as fundamentally "flawed," including House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry, R-Texas.
Thornberry said Tuesday that even though he would have preferred "to give our European allies a few more months to strengthen the deal," U.S. priorities should now turn to boosting military and diplomatic efforts: "A strong, international effort is required to curtail Iran’s aggressive behavior in a number of areas.”
Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said in a statement that the president’s comments had sent “a strong statement that we can and must do better," but suggested that he, too, would have preferred modifying the agreement.
“I have always believed the best course of action is to fix the deficiencies in the agreement,” Ryan said. “It is unfortunate that we could not reach an understanding with our European partners on a way to do that, but I am grateful to them for working with the United States toward that goal. The president is right to insist that we hold Iran accountable both today and for the long term.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said that the administration's European partners "now have an opportunity to come back to the table with Secretary Pompeo and negotiate the best terms to create either a better agreement or a maximum pressure campaign against Iran,"
Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said that "based on conversations I have had in recent days, I sense that the administration will move quickly to work toward a better deal."

Democrats are so hell-bent on hating Trump they would rather see the US fail than to see Trump succeed. I’ve never encountered this much hatred from people that should be on the same side, especially when it comes to foreign relations.
Trump was successful in negotiations with Kim Jong Un for the release of three Americans being held prisoner in North Korea. This is monumental. These are people with families, and they didn’t know if they would ever see their families again.
This is a remarkable deal and only conservatives are talking about it on social media. Democrats and Hollywood elite don’t care about people unless it helps with their agenda. It’s really astounding to watch it played out. Nevertheless, it is true.
The New York Times bashed Mike Pompeo for being missing in action while President Trump dismantled the Iran nuclear deal but it turned out Pompeo was busy rescuing those three Americans. One of which had been held since 2015.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The Failing New York Times criticized Secretary of State Pompeo for being AWOL (missing), when in fact he was flying to North Korea.

We all remember, in June 2017 North Korea freed a detained U.S. citizen, Otto Warmbier who died within a week of returning to his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio in a coma.
These three men were released and are alive and safe in the US. This is miraculous. This should be what everyone is talking about, but alas, the left is still just hating Trump.

The ridicule and hatred by the left and the liberal biased media have become overwhelmingly sadistic in behavior. This has to end or where will this put the US? We look weak as a nation.
We must rise up like the powerful nation that we are, the country that people from all over the world dream of coming to.
