Rep. Bass Statement On Trump Withdrawing From The Iran Nuclear Deal

May 8, 2018
Press Release
WASHINGTON - Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) today issued the following statement after President Trump withdrew from the Iran Nuclear Deal.

“Withdrawing from this deal sets a dangerous precedent that our country’s word cannot be trusted as we engage in delicate diplomatic talks with North Korea’s dictator. This was not just a deal between the United States and Iran, this was an international pact with China, France, Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom. Pulling out of the only established deal to restrain Iran’s nuclear development only makes our country and our allies in the region, especially Israel, less safe.

“President Trump’s continuing obsession with destroying President Obama’s legacy first risked the health insurance of millions. Now, it risks the stability of an entire region.”
