Donald Trump nuking Iran deal has huge implications



President Trump’s decision to scrap the Iran nuclear deal, established under President Obama, has major implications across the globe and for the White House.

President Trump announced that he would reimpose “the highest level of economic” sanctions on Iran and pull the U.S. out of the nuclear agreement negotiated in 2015. Here’s a look at what that agreement includes and what steps the president is taking to upend it.

What is the Iran nuclear deal?
The United States and five other nations — the United Kingdom, France, Russia, China, and Germany — negotiated an agreement with Iran in 2015 requiring Tehran to curb its nuclear program in exchange for reduced sanctions.

Known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action — or “the Iran nuclear deal” — the agreement required Iran to reduce its stockpile of enriched uranium and limit its use of centrifuges to make enriched uranium.

In exchange, the U.S. and other countries agreed to lift a wide range of economic sanctions on Iran.

So what’s the problem?
Supporters of the agreement, including members of the Obama administration who negotiated it, said the deal was the best option to slow Iran’s path to a nuclear weapon. Analysts believed Iran was months away from being able to build a nuclear weapon before the agreement.

“The choice we face is ultimately between diplomacy or some form of war,” President Barack Obama said in 2015. “Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not three months from now, but soon.”

Opponents, including Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, have criticized many elements of the deal. They note it does not fully eliminate Iran’s ability to enrich uranium. They point out that many of its prohibitions expire after 15 years. And they say the agreement does little to curb Iran’s influence in sectarian conflicts in the region.

Trump vowed to back out of the Iran agreement during his campaign, and as president he has called it “insane,” “ridiculous,” and “one of the worst deals I have ever witnessed.”

  1. So I guess Obama had the right plan. let's give Iran a ton of money to pretty please be our friend and stop building nuclear bombs and then pretend that we don't see them building nuclear bombs. I mean they took their cargo planes full of cash and you know they didn't stop building bombs.

  2. This clown is the same clown as Trudeau . They are just talking and talking. Has he actually done anything he said so far ? . The wall , Iran , nafta ?

  3. Trump should focus on making America great forever with a wall around America and hopefully die by themselves.

  4. Trump is a cry baby, he doesnt want Iran to become strong. I mean wtf, go watch ur own country instead of making war with every country, stop disturbing the other countries…..

  5. he can withdraw and put economic sanctions on Iran which will not work because a country like India will gain heavily as Iran will trade with India no matter what and USA cant do anything to India as it is the second largest consumer in the world. When United States sanctioned India on nuclear tests in 1998 India Economy boomed because of it as we got cheaper deals from other countries because of it. Till date Bill Clinton's administration says that it was the biggest setback for them as they underestimated India. By the way withdrawing from Iran deal has been great for Saudi Arabia who is the biggest supporter of withdrawal from the deal because of this the price of oil has now reached $80 and will probable reach $100. The Saudi's played a master stroke they got their way without looking like the bad guys. I now have true respect respect for Prince Salman the man who fooled trump 😀

  6. From Iran: To all country
    Pleas Do not buy Oil from Iran, All the oil money is used to support terrorists.
    We in Iran are suffering under this Islamic ugly backward evil regime.
    Pleas help to free Iran from Evil Islam and Ayatollahs

  10. As a proud member of the Trump base, and as a person who talks to Jesus on a regular basis, I support Donald J. Trump, our POTUS, no matter what he says, tweets, does, or did. MAGA!!!

  11. "President Trump just pulled the U.S. out of the Iran [pronounced:] "N U – C U – L A R" deal??!!…….."Nu-cu-lar" weapons? "Nu-cu-lar" reactor? Why do some people have such a hard time pronouncing this word correctly?? It's easy: say "new," and then "clear," and then put these two words together! It's simple!

  12. Who the f*ck gives a sh*t about the EU? The EU is doomed to ultimate failure anyway. But OmgOmgOmg, the EU doesn't approve! Is there anyone's ass liberals WON'T kiss? Oh yeah: average American citizens, the one group of people they DON'T give a f*ck about.

  13. North Korean's case, US can use Japan's big Money to stop Nuclear Program, it won't hurt US ……how about Iran? US have to pay big money……..would Mr.Trump consider Japan's interest when he meet Kim Jong Un? I'm not so sure, did he consult with Japan about it? I don't think so…….Globalist made Japan paid to build Nuke Power Plant in North Korea in order to extort Japan to fill their(Globalist) purse!!!!!!!!!!!!! Evil regime was Obama, Clinton, Bush……and Globalist( Democrats, Obama, Clinton) don't have rights to say any decision Mr.Trump made on Iran Deal………such large sum of Money? Globalist used Iran Deal to pocket themselves using Iran Deal………

  14. What is the point of the Iran nuclear deal? To curved Iran's nuclear ambitions. Shouldn't tell you something that Iran is the one upset and Isreal, Jordan,Saudi Arabia, United Arab nations are the ones that are happy?

  15. I think US sorry trump wants a war. iran is following the deal …this is trump who wants to out off the deal …………….this time Amarican choose a bad leader for them self and his decision will finish Amarican monopoly ,A good decision makes us great and bad makes us devil

  16. Some people cheer, some people sad, some people deeply regret, rather than
    face life, brave and optimistic to accept the challenge?

    有些人欢呼, 有些人伤心, 有些人深感遗憾,
    而不是面对生活, 勇敢而乐观地接受挑战?

  17. If we were to stay out of the affairs of other nations while also being vigilant we would be on more sturdy ground. Notice I said being vigilant. In other other words if someone did something to us we strike back hard. As to Iran acquiring nuclear weapons how many other countries are without them? Will we be forever policing to see that no one else has them or is trying to acquire them?

  18. Now Iran has got to go back to bumming smokes and shining shoses Now go get your shinebox!! Can't we just get along with each other??

  19. Trump is a stupid lunatic that will murder the world to undo Obama's work in the White House! He is an insane monster that YOU AMERICANS NEED TO END NOW!!!!
