Trump Cancels Iran Deal: Complete Video - Well Delivered Lies and Innuendo

Following a well-delivered set of lies and accusations, Trump signed an executive order halting a deal with Iran.

President Trump waved sanctions several times, but today, as expected, Trump unilaterally pulled out of a nuclear deal with Iran.

Trump cancelled the deal despite pleas from European leaders and legitimate concerns in Congress.

Trump’s decision, announced at the White House, follows the failure of last-ditch efforts by Britain, France and Germany to convince him that his concerns about “flaws” in the accord could be addressed without violating its terms or ending it altogether.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), a sometime Trump critic, warned Tuesday that the ramifications of a U.S. withdrawal could reach beyond the Middle East.

“The agreement obviously had problems it didn’t address, Iran’s malign behavior or ballistic missiles. But after you’re in it and Iran has already realized the benefits of it ... to now allow them to get out of their obligations on the nuclear side would be foolhardy, in my view,” Flake told reporters. “And it also says more about our willingness to work with our allies. We’re having enough problems around the world in terms of our reliability, whether it’s trade or commercial engagements or security arrangements.”

Trump refused to answer question about the pullout, instead briefly commenting on progress in North Korea.

Irony

When it comes to kidnapping, torture, lies, and stirring up trouble in the Mideast, the US is second to none.

Supposedly, Israel has proof Iran reneged on the deal. Let's see the proof.

Trump just likes the attention he gets from breaking things he doesn't understand but knows will upset people. His appeal to his base is not what he does, but who he upsets.

It is also telling when your negotiating opposite reminds you regularly that it intends to destroy your allies, and ultimately you. This is known as "testing" to see how far the opposition can be pushed. Here's a secret. When your negotiating opponent says "Death to you and yours," leave the table without explanation. Otherwise you are assuring the opposition that you'll give up lots more....and we did.

But more telling is the nature of the negotiations themselves. For everyone who has actually negotiated a stressed deal, our negotiators appeared to be completely incompetent. When Iran would repudiate an earlier agreed term, we simply continued as though it didn't matter. The most notorious was there refusal to sign the heads of agreement in March, when they suddenly claimed that was not part of the framework for agreement, which it was.

Anyone who carefully followed the Iran deal negotiations and its terms would have to be curious as to why we "made" the deal. In fact it does not provide for our oversight of their development facilities (the US agents are excluded from any oversight), nor are all of their development facilities subject to oversight....especially one of their major military development sites.
