Cicilline Statement on Trump Decision to Withdraw from Iran Deal

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the following statement today:

“This is a reckless decision. It’s a decision that endangers our security and makes it harder for other countries to take us at our word.”

“For two years, the Iran deal has imposed the most intrusive nuclear inspections regime in the history of the world. It has prevented Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. It is not perfect, but the President’s decision will make it harder than ever to improve it.”

“In addition, the President’s decision undermines the United States’ reputation. We have always kept our word, but that changed today. Countries like North Korea now have even more reason to question whether President Trump won’t just change the terms of any current or future agreements when he feels like it. That will make us less respected across the world, and it does nothing to make us safer at home.”
