MS Senator Roger Wicker released this state after President Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal:
“The nuclear agreement with Iran was always fundamentally flawed and has proven counter-productive to our national security. That is why I voted against the proposal in 2015. Staying in the agreement would have guaranteed Iran the ability to build a nuclear bomb in a few short years. President Trump was right to keep his promise and walk away from this bad deal. We should work with our allies to craft a new agreement that can dampen Iran’s nuclear ambitions, halt its ballistic missile program, and punish this rogue regime for its support of terrorism and other malign activities across the globe.”
Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith commended the Presidents action:
“President Trump is right to get out of the Iran Nuclear Deal and impose economic sanctions in order to force a more legitimate agreement to fight the threat Iran poses to our interests, our allies, and peace in the region. The Obama agreement allowed the regime in Tehran to benefit economically, while it maintained a nuclear program, supported global terrorism, and threatened the survival of Israel.
“I commend the President for his bold action. He has my full support, and I hope his leadership moves the international community to join us to find a better solution that is truly in the best interest of the United States and global security.”
