McMorris Rodgers Statement on the President’s Announcement to End U.S. Participation in Flawed Iran Deal

WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 8, 2018) – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after President Donald Trump announced the United States is ending participating in the Obama administration’s flawed “Iran Nuclear Deal.”

“I’ve said all along that the ‘Iran Deal’ is flawed and it doesn’t adequately stop the Iranian regime, the leading state sponsor of terror, from obtaining or developing a nuclear weapon. The President is right–we need a better solution that ensures the safety and security of our nation and of our allies, including Israel. I support the President’s decision to put our interests first and protect America from this bad deal. This is an opportunity for the United States to continue our partnership with our European allies to truly hold Iran accountable for its destabilizing actions. Together, we must apply enhanced pressure on Iran with strong sanctions and robust inspections that will dismantle its extensive nuclear infrastructure.”
