Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s Statement on President Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Iran Nuclear Deal and reinstate sanctions on Iran.
“I strongly support President Trump’s courageous decision to withdraw from the dangerous Iranian nuclear deal. Rather than prevent an Iranian nuclear weapon, the Obama Iran deal paved the way for such a weapon. It failed to include anywhere/anytime inspections. It failed to allow any inspections of Iranian military facilities. It failed to include a complete declaration of Iran’s past nuclear activities. It allowed Iran to continue to enrich uranium. It allowed Iran to continue its ballistic missile program. The deal was one of the most dangerous agreements the United States has ever entered into and President Trump was right to withdraw and announce the reimposition of sanctions on the world’s leading state sponsor of terror.”
