White House Calls Out Obama, Hillary And Kerry For Saying Trump Was Wrong To Pull Out Of The Iran Deal

From the Daily Mail:

The White House ripped former President Obama and his secretaries of state on Wednesday after they derided President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran deal as mistake.

Obama in his statement slamming sitting President Donald Trump’s sanctions on Iran called for ‘principled, fact-based, and unifying leadership that can best secure our country and uphold our responsibilities around the globe.’

Clinton crowed that American’s ‘credibility is shot’ and ‘Iran is free to do what it wants’ now that the U.S. has no leverage.

Kerry argued that Trump’s announcement ‘weakens our security, breaks America’s word’ and ‘isolates us from our European allies,’ among other things.

‘I think based on each of those individuals’ lack of success in this entire process on foreign affairs, they would probably be the last three people that we would look to for advice and counsel, and whether or not we had made the right decisions,’ spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Wednesday at her daily briefing.[…]

Lecturing the sitting president, Obama explained that his administration knew that the 2015 accord it helped to negotiate would not address every Iranian threat.

‘We were clear-eyed that Iran engages in destabilizing behavior – including support for terrorism, and threats toward Israel and its neighbors,’ he said. ‘But that’s precisely why it was so important that we prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.’

‘Every aspect of Iranian behavior that is troubling is far more dangerous if their nuclear program is unconstrained. Our ability to confront Iran’s destabilizing behavior – and to sustain a unity of purpose with our allies – is strengthened with the JCPOA, and weakened without it.’
