Congressman Joe Wilson Supports President Trump on Iran Deal

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Joe Wilson released the following statement in support of President Donald Trump’s announcement that he is withdrawing the United States’ from the Iran nuclear deal.

I am grateful for the courageous leadership of President Donald Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and National Security Advisor John Bolton for reversing the failed policies of the previous administration and withdrawing from the dangerous Iran nuclear deal.”

“The Iranian dictatorship has been a longtime sponsor of Global Terrorism, providing an estimated $200 million a year to the murderous terrorist group Hizballah. Unfortunately, the Iran nuclear deal lifted American sanctions and increased Iran’s ability to fund terrorism abroad, and did nothing to stop Iran’s murderous behavior in the Middle East as it chants ‘Death to Israel, Death to America.’”

“With today’s announcement, President Trump will be able to renegotiate from a position of strength and get a better deal that protects American families.”
