Congressman Earl L. “Buddy” Carter (R-Ga-01) released the following statement after President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw America from the nuclear deal with Iran and reimpose sanctions lifted under the deal:
“I applaud President Trump’s decision to remove America from this bad deal. I have said from the beginning that America should never be part of a deal built on trusting a regime that has cheated on international agreements time and again. It is no surprise that this has failed to increase our national security. It remains a dangerous deal that threatens to unleash a nuclear arms race in the most unstable region in the world, imperils our closest ally Israel, and signals to other regimes that America will not maintain its resolve to combat extremism.
“President Trump’s decision today makes clear that we will not stand with a regime that spreads terror around the world and we will not accept a nuclear Iran.”
