Senior Foreign Affairs Member: Reckless and Dangerous Deal From The Start

WASHINGTON - Congressman Joe Wilson, a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, today released the following statement:

“President Trump's decision not to re-certify the Iran Deal is exactly right. This was a reckless and dangerous deal from the start, it never truly served the interests of the American people, and it threatened the safety and security of America and our allies.

"I look forward to re-visiting the consideration of economic sanctions on the House floor."

This week, the House Foreign Affairs Committee approved the Iran Ballistic Missiles and International Sanctions Enforcement Act that imposes sanctions directly targeting Iran’s nuclear program and its ability to produce ICBM’s.
