Here's All You Need to Know About Trump's Decision to Decertify the Iran Nuke Deal

"If one seeks war, Trump's decision makes sense."

by Jake Johnson


In what critics are slamming as a decision to embrace "war over peace," President Donald Trump is reportedly gearing up to officially "decertify" the Iran nuclear deal next week on the grounds that it is "not in the national interest of the United States."

Many in recent days have predicted that Trump would ultimately opt to decertify the deal he so often railed against on the campaign trail. While some within his administration have urged Trump to uphold U.S. commitment to the nuclear accord, the right-wing hawks calling for tougher sanctions and outlining potential "military options" appear to have won out.

"The move would mark the first step in a process that could eventually result in the resumption of U.S. sanctions against Iran, which would blow up a deal limiting Iran's nuclear activities," the Washington Post noted.

In a Twitter thread on Thursday, Trita Parsi, president of the National Iranian American Council, explained why Trump's move to undermine the nuclear deal is so dangerous—and why his justifications for doing so are blatantly false.
