Trump Pulls Out of Iran Deal


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump plans to follow through on his campaign threat to pull out of the landmark nuclear accord with Iran, according to two people familiar with his thinking, dealing a profound blow to U.S. allies and potentially deepening the president’s isolation on the world stage.

It wasn’t immediately clear which sanctions that were lifted under the deal might be quickly reimposed, said the people, who were not authorized to speak publicly. Trump has several options, and a limited move could leave him more room to potentially stay in the deal after all if other members agree to toughen it.

Take notice of the incredible bias in the AP story. Trump is following through on a campaign “threat” instead of a “promise.” He is dealing a “profound blow to U.S. allies” but no mention of our enemies. That’s just the first paragraph!

    It’s strange that Trump sites Israeli intelligence over what US intelligence has said.

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    Was the “better and cheaper health care bill” a promise or a threat?  Or the “best and brightest” in the cabinet?

  3. Pat

    I’m still waiting for repeal and replace with something that is better than what there is. How’s that going??

    Why do you deflect off of Trump undoing the evil Obama/Iran deal? Stopping the 8 year Obama coddling and funding of evil Islamic terrorists is a good thing.

    Stop tearing down all the foreign policy progress Trump is achieving!

  5. Le Roi du Nord


    No deflection, just asking for a clarification of terms.  Or don’t words mean anything in your parts?

    President Bone Spurs tells the world we don’t need allies. I’m sure they’ll stand with us.

  7. Kevin Scheunemann

    Poland, Hungary, Czech republic love us and Trump!

    U.S. helped free Eastern bloc from the socialist tyranny!   Christianity is ta cking hold in record numbers, while at the same time the tyrannical leftisits are destroying Western Europe and causing an unprecedented decline in Christianity.

    We have allies.  It is those countries that embrace all that is good.  If they embrace leftist evil, they are no longer allies because they have abandoned what is good when it comes to human freedom.

    “We have allies.  It is those countries that embrace all that is good.  If they embrace leftist evil, they are no longer allies because they have abandoned what is good when it comes to human freedom.”

    Yo worldview so binary, it makes ASCII code look like a Shakespeare sonnet.

    Just trying to cut through all the leftist tolerance clutter that excuses evil.

    Nearly everyone is aligned with China.    Given our capitalist investment in China, we are more aligned with China than Eastern Bloc.

    What is your point with your radical, dripping, leftist article you linked to?

    You can’t stand it that the former socialist prisoners of Eastern bloc are radical capitalists and embracing Christianity in record numbers…is that your real problem here?

  11. Le Roi du Nord


    Just pointing out the double standard that you possess.  Isn’t China a leftist, socialist, communist, non-democratic country ruled by an autocrat?  You have decried and condemned those folks at length. Yet now you are all buddies with them? And many of those old eastern bloc countries are headed back to autocratic regimes of their own.   Soooo many hypocrites, so little time.

    And explain what a “radical capitalist” is, please…

  12. Kevin Scheunemann

    Yes, I think China is standard socialist liberal evil, but they at least recognize capitalism, even practiced small is good for their country.

    Where capitalism exists people tend to be more free.

    So China, today is not quite as bad as your historical socialist country cesspool.

    What is your point?   you are the one going off subject, rather than praise Trump for kicking Iranian evil in the teeth.

  13. Le Roi du Nord

    The point is you have an unwavering double standard; whatever you say at a particular moment is right, even if the current position is in conflict with your previous statement.  And everybody else is always wrong.

    And, BTW, you were the one that brought up the eastern bloc countries…..

  14. Kevin Scheunemann

    If my double standard is:  I oppose socialist evil, sometimes strongly, sometimes measured,…then, yes, guilty.

    Better than a standard embracing the evil.
