Rep. David Cicilline (D., R.I.) on Friday blamed President Donald Trump for a British oil tanker being seized by Iran in the Strait of Hormuz, saying it was the “inevitable result” of the administration withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal.

Cicilline appeared on CNN’s Situation Room, where fill-in host Brianna Keilar noted he was on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and asked him whether the committee had been briefed on the attack.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We have not. These events have just happened, but this is a very serious and dangerous situation. Frankly, it is in part the inevitable result of a failed policy by this administration,” Cicilline said. “The president walked away from the Iran deal, instituted additional sanctions on Iran with really no strategy of what to do after that, so Iran has engaged in a lot of aggressive behavior, now against one of our allies and there doesn’t seem to be a strategy or a plan in place as to how we move forward.”
