Iran Claims Trump Can’t Rip Up Nuclear Deal, Turns Out He Can
At Downtrend by Brian Anderson --
Secretary of State John Kerry negotiated one of the worst deals in the history of diplomacy when he eased all sanctions on Iran in exchange for them promising to stop developing nuclear weapons with no serious oversight. Obama proudly signed off on this deal because he’s just a shitty leader. President-elect Donald Trump has said he will rip up this ridiculous agreement as soon as he takes office, but Iran claims he lacks the authority. Funny thing: even Obama’s State Department admits, Trump can throw this thing in the garbage.
Working on reports that Trump plans to undo the horrible nuclear deal, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani not only said Trump can’t rip up the agreement, but also threatened the United States if he does.
“[Trump] wants to do many things, but none of his actions would affect us. Do you think that the United States can rip up the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear deal]? Do you think we and our nation will let him do that?” Rouhani asked.
See the thing is, Obama approved this deal on his own with out any confirmation from Congress, much in the same way he has conducted his entire presidency. It’s as good as Obama’s word, meaning it ain’t worth shit.
