REPORT: Republicans mostly praise Trump’s Iran decision, some call it a mistake


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by LA Times:

Congressional Democrats, including several who initially opposed the Iran nuclear deal, lashed out Tuesday at President Trump’s controversial decision to end U.S. participation in the pact, while praise came from many — but not all — in the GOP.

Most Republicans accepted Trump’s argument that the landmark multinational agreement was fundamentally flawed and that efforts to contain Iran had to expand beyond its nuclear program.

But Trump critics lamented a move they say only puts the world, and especially allies in the Middle East, at greater risk.

The article goes on to state the following:

Sen. Marco Rubio, a fierce critic of Iran, supported Trump’s decision to withdraw from what the Florida Republican called a “flawed and dangerous agreement that is beyond fixing.”

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) echoed those sentiments, although he insisted that he would rather have fixed the deal than nix it.

Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said he would have preferred to give European allies more time to strengthen the deal.

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he hoped Trump’s decision to exit the deal has not doomed future negotiations.
