The same, deft touch he employed with north korea - i wonder what epithets he'll use for Rouhani..

Deal was concluded under the Obama Administration. Trump's hatred for Obama knows no bounds, and he will do anything to eliminate the legacy. Trump is petty and spiteful. And a lousy leader.

I also get the feeling Trump specifically targets Obama's policies out of spite.

There's nothing in the agreement that stops us from going after Iran. Everyone, including Trump's own advisors and generals, say it's better for us to stay in it. Makes no strategic sense whatsoever and it drives a wedge between us and our allies and isolates the US.

Purely an emotional decision for reasons he will not disclose.

Trump's boss doesn't like the deal.

Headline implies otherwise.

beside its fellow axis members Saudi Arabia and Israel. Trump: ratcheting up the chaos, one tweet at a time.

brBush Trump's boss doesn't like the deal.

Who knows how Tsar Vlad will play this. Curious to read more of the messages his keyboard brigade will be sending, and also how the 'evangelical Russians' settling in the US respond.

Trump: Making the marvelous, beautiful - believe me - perfect the enemy of the good since 2016.® Trump clearly does not remember how fraught the original negotiations were, and they were backed not only by a powerful coalition but, conceivably, by international law in terms of nuclear nonproliferation.

Not this time. Trump's charging out with no friends and no legal backing towards an undefined destination. Even those who dislike the current deal can discern the reckless futility of Trump's impotent lashing-out.

Deal was concluded under the Obama Administration.

Which was a crappy and shouldn't have been implanted in the first place.

Trump's hatred for Obama knows no bounds, and he will do anything to eliminate the legacy.

And you don't think Obama on the side lines and his minions aren't actively doing the same now?

Trump is petty and spiteful. And a lousy leader.

Yes, to the people that hate him, not for the people that support him.

What benefit does the US get by pulling out?

Trump received support from Israel, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, all of which oppose what they say are Iran's expansionary moves in the Middle East.

Say what! Settelements, Yemen, and where did that whole Qatar crisis go? Oh how I hate the globalist MSM.

"President Trump has just created an opportunity to fix this bad deal, to roll back Iran's aggression and to confront its criminal support of terrorism," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a video statement.

And what about those ISIS camps on the Isreali border Bibi?

Was reading about the Knights Templars last night. History is really amazing. Reading about what was going on in this area 900 years ago.

Makes perfect sense to me, taking all the BS and emotional political and putting it aside.

I don't see any benefits listed in that article. Can you point some out to me?

The US is free to put additional sanctions on Iran in other areas. Which is what the article is talking about. The agreement in no way prevents us from doing so.

Finally a real president. somebody with guts. unlike Obama

Whatever Obama did, he has to destroy.

Yes, draft-dodging Trump is really tough on Twitter. His birther tweets and catfight with a beauty queen were as gutsy as it gets.

This trash merchant couldn't care less about anything but himself.

Let's hope this moron is thrown out before the body bags start piling up. If not, watch out for Trump-branded body bags. High quality. The highest quality. Such high quality your head will spin.

I just hope that the UK continues to side with Europe after Brexit.

Somehow I doubt it....

time for UN sanctions on America. i think if gone to the vote only 4 countries would disagree.

Finally we have a president who stands up for American interests.

Oh my...

Bass: Try reading it agin, please.

I did. No explanations how pulling out is good for America. It would appear that you support Trump but you can't say why. Why post links? Use your words.

Makes perfect sense to me, taking all the BS and emotional political and putting it aside.

@bass, if you remove the emotional and opinion unsupported by evidence from the Investor's Daily editorial, there is nothing left. Unless you claim the National Council of Resistance in Iran as a credible source. But that would be like relying on the Democrats for an accurate criticism of Trump's administration. When an editorial includes the phrase "And make no mistake", my eyebrows tend to rise up.

Now you do know Bubba dodged the draft as well, so now we have two presidents that were dodgy.

His birther tweets and catfight with a beauty queen were as gutsy as it gets.

If only Podesta and Hillary wouldn’t have been so overtly racist with that.

This trash merchant couldn't care less about anything but himself.

Welcome to the world of politics. His predecessor had an ego the size of a blimp.

Let's hope this moron is thrown out before the body bags start piling up. If not, watch out for Trump-branded body bags. High quality. The highest quality. Such high quality your head will spin.

If he gets thrown out, then we have Pence who’s a real conservative, because the Dems won’t get it, they keep losing elections.

@Super

I know you do it! Try again.

So you're saying that Bill Clinton was a draft dodger, John Podesta and Hillary Clinton are racist, and Obama is egotistical.

Noted.

Back on topic please.

@Mr. Noidall

Brilliant. Uncanny. I'm sure you have a future as a speechwriter for Mr Trump....

Right-wing websites haven't given conservatives their talking points yet so there's not much they can say at this point. Give it a few hours.

Burning Bush; Either way, ordinary Americans have nothing to fear from Iran and nothing to gain from a war with them.

Nothing to fear? Except for maybe those hundreds of ordinary Americans killed directly or indirectly by the Iranian regime in Iraq. Is chanting 'Death to America' endlessly for 4 decades too subtle for the Left? It appears that way.

Iran is already at war with the US whether anyone likes it or not. That is why they helped the Islamists kill American soldiers. Why pretend otherwise and send plane loads of cash to such a regime? Obama's agreement with the largest state sponsor of global terrorism is worse than mere folly - it's terribly dangerous. Trump is fixing that boneheaded error. I would prefer that he would do so with some (or any for that matter) aplomb and statesman like dexterity, but his ham fisted style can be forgiven due to the seriousness of Obama's mistake.

@albaleo: Unless you claim the National Council of Resistance in Iran as a credible source. 

Maybe they are credible, maybe they are not. But certainly no one would consider the Iranian regime and Russia more so. And the Europeans are not hiding the fact that they are only interested in allowing their big corporations to get richer selling their products to Iran for their mountains of petroleum derived cash. How can the Left let their ideology be so blinding to the obvious motivations at play?

@Wolfpack

Sorry, but I find your comments confusing. (That may be my problem.)

And the Europeans are not hiding the fact that they are only interested in allowing their big corporations to get richer selling their products to Iran for their mountains of petroleum derived cash.

But don't "the Europeans" get more from Saudi Arabia than Iran? If the interest is purely money, why would they court Iran at the risk of alienating Saudi Arabia?

How can the Left let their ideology be so blinding to the obvious motivations at play?

Expression such as "the Europeans" and "the Left" are not very illuminating. Who do you mean exactly?

Trump is fixing that boneheaded error.

What does pulling out of the agreement fix? Is there language that stops us from countering their influence in the Middle East?
