Iran Deal ‘Over-Hyped’ – Here’s How Trump Can Curb Iran’s Nuclear Program

posted by The Glenn Beck Program - 

What happened?

President Donald Trump announced on Friday that he will not re-certify the 2015 nuclear deal that the Obama administration made with Iran. Congress will now have to decide whether to continue the deal or change it.

Remind me:

The Iran deal has been called one of former President Barack Obama’s landmark foreign policy achievements and is aimed at keeping Iran’s nuclear weapons program under control. But critics say it gives Iran way too much room to grow its nuclear arsenal without supervision.

Can we do anything to keep Iran from getting more nukes?

Trump is trying a different tack: more sanctions. Also on Friday, Trump announced new sanctions against Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, which he says is responsible for “death, destruction, and chaos all around the globe.”

Glenn’s take:

Obama’s deal with Iran was really about pushing off the problem for another president and Congress to deal with. De-certifying the deal doesn’t do a lot – but new sanctions are a real step forward.

“Trump’s biggest announcement Friday on Iran didn’t have anything to do with the over-hyped nuke deal,” Glenn said. “It came with his call to place the Iranian Revolutionary Guard corps on the terror sanction list.”
