VIDEO: “America will not be held hostage to nuclear blackmail.”

(U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Delano Scott)

Highlights from President Trump’s announcement to withdraw from the Obama era Iran Nuclear Deal:

“The United States no longer makes empty threats. When I make promises, I keep them.”

“In a few moments, I will sign a presidential memorandum to begin reinstating US nuclear sanctions on the Iranian regime. We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanction.”

“Last week, Israel published intelligence documents – long concealed by Iran – conclusively showing the Iranian regime’s history of pursuing nuclear weapons.”

“At the point when the US had maximum leverage, this disastrous deal gave this regime — and it’s a regime of great terror — many billions of dollars, some of it in actually cash, a great embarrassment to me as a citizen.”
“A constructive deal could easily have been struck at the time. But it wasn’t,” Trump said. “At the heart of the Iran deal was a giant fiction that a murderous regime desired only a peaceful nuclear energy program.”

“If I allowed this deal to stand, there would soon be a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. Everyone would want their weapons ready by the time Iran had theirs.”

“Any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons could also be strongly sanctioned by the United States. America will not be held hostage to nuclear blackmail.”

“Finally I want to deliver a message to the long suffering people of Iran. The people of America stand with you. It has now been almost 40 years since this dictatorship seized power and took a proud nation hostage. Most of Iran’s 80 million citizens have sadly never known an Iran that prospered in peace with its neighbors and commanded the admiration of the world. But the future of Iran belongs to its people. They are the rightful heirs to a rich culture and an ancient land, and they deserve a nation that does justice to their dreams, honor to their history, and glory to God.”

“This will make America much safer. Thank you very much.”

Best President since Reagan! He is amazing, and he is keeping every promise to us. Yet, liberals won’t be happy until he is out, but that won’t happen, he is gaining more popularity with each accomplishment. He will win in 2020, liberals only have Commies and no Blue Dogs, so anyone with common sense will never vote the Regime back in, they are gone, but BO keeps trying as well as the liberals and Commie leaders in Congress. They need to step back, because American Patriotism is far, far stronger than the Seeds of Satan that is the Democratic Socialist Party of America. I LOVE OUR PRESIDENT and MELANIA!

I agree with you John! We cannot let them go! I have faith that when this all settles, President Trump will make sure that they get what’s coming to them. He doesn’t look kindly on those who went to the lengths these two corrupt, evil politicians did to destroy him. God is on President Trump’s side, the right side, and with that, the left is done. This country was saved by the election of President Trump, I am extremely proud to support him and his family!

The people of Iran seriously need to overthrow those nasty Ayatollah’s. They need to go.

Jackie Fenolio (@fenolj)

In a few years, [nuclear] restrictions will be automatically removed,” Netanyahu said, “not by a change in Iran’s behavior, not by a lessening of its terror or its aggression—they’ll just be removed by a mere change in the calendar.” Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson echoed the same view saying, “The [deal’s] most glaring flaw is the sunset provision…We all know that this is merely a kick-the-can-down-the-road agreement.”
What Netanyahu, Tillerson, and other critics take issue with is not just that these expiration dates arrive too soon, but that there are expiration dates at all.

Of course this makes perfect sense, so therefore we can expect intense criticism from the haters.

I was incensed when I read what the liberal idiots did to disrespect our First Lady. She said the Lord’s Prayer at the beginning of a meeting. The most awful comment was that she said the prayer like a whore in confession. I have NEVER EVER heard anyone disrespect a First Lady in such a vulgar hateful manner. I am ashamed of these so-called Americans and wish they would live somewhere else. I’m also tired of the newspapers and news programs that are so anti-Trump that they will not report any of the many good things this President has done. He is not all talk, he is all action. God Bless Our President!! I hope this nonsense will stop and that good Americans will absolutely see to it that he serves a second term. Our economy is in the best shape in years. We were in the toilet with the clown that preceded him.

That’s just it, they aren’t Americans, because they have tried to change every aspect of this great country. They love evil, and hate good. They make fun of a Christian family when this country was built on Christian/Judeo principals, then they defend Islam when it is the most evil ideology along with Communism and Socialism. They believe the Constitution is outdated, and only obey our law when it suits their agenda, and they hate Capitalism and want a Communist society! Yet, they vote for a woman, who took hundreds of thousands of dollars from Islamic Countries. These liberals are so brainwashed, there is the Whore of Islam, screaming “War on Women” yet receiving money from the same countries who treat women and little girls the most brutal on Earth, HYPOCRISY! All Killary and BO was interested in was money, power and control and they did everything to accomplish this, including lying, cheating and murdering anyone who got in their evil way. They better be prosecuted, no more protecting the most evil politicians this country has ever seen, and in BO’s case, an Arab/Muslim/Communist/Kenyan who was never eligible to be POTUS! That is what you get when you don’t elect an American. We have one now, he is doing a fantastic job, and he isn’t going to allow the Marxist Media and all the Commies (LIBERALS), to get in the way. I LOVE THAT HE HAS SAID WHAT HE MEANS, AND STICKS BY IT, NO LIES TO HIS SUPPORTERS!” Liberals and their evil leaders have tried to break President Trump since he was rightfully elected, but they can’t do it. I’m sure they thought by now he would have thrown his hands up and said this job isn’t worth the harassment I receive from the evil liberals and their leaders who drum up one scandal after another. He is going down in history as the “MAN WHO SAVED AMERICA!”

Is that why George H.W. Bush said in a speech, if they (the American People) ever found out what we did, they chase us down the street and string us up in trees. Followed by manical grin and laugh.

The media will focus only negative opinions about this action by President Trump. It is clearly fraughtwith much unknown potential consequeces. The existing deal was far from being faorable to a peaceful future. Hopefully, Iran can be pressured into more acceptable behavior. Forceful opposition seems to me to be preferable to wishful thinking.

Thank God and American patriots for the election of a businessman-entrepreneur as POTUS! Politicians have become the ruin of the U.S. We have elected those who make many promises and do not fulfill any. This president started fulfilling his campaign promises on Day One and continues every day working for us for free, sleeping 3 hours per day, a most extraordinary man and POTUS!

Great move Mr. President! That sinister look on the Iran leader always has sent shivers up my spine. I can sniff the wind to tell that I would never take him at his word. He’s stirring up too many factions in the mid-east; this can never lead to peaceful solutions in that part of the world. And it will only get worse for the rest of the world if he has his way.
Keep the faith, Mr. President. More and more real Americans are with you and are praying for your efforts on this issue and with the North Korea meeting.
And with all other issues: The Wall, immigration reform, abolishing sanctuary cities and their supporters, beefing up ICE and the National Guard to stop this invasion of illegals and other issues are all part of what REAL Americans want. You are doing the job. THANKS!

I do as well John. I knew, if the Whore of Islam was elected, that would be the end of America. My hero, Dr. Carson said it when he asked his supporters to back President Trump, and that man is far too intelligent for any liberal, he knows what he was talking about, and that is the reason both Trump and Carson, who neither one had to run to line their pockets and become a member of the Political Cartel, but they ran for POTUS because they LOVE the country that gave both of them the chance to rise to success that could not be accomplished in any other country.

Its true President Trump is a man of his word. Obama’s was/is not just like most, if not all, of the oppressive socialists word. A man is only as good as his word if his word is no good he is no good. No further explanation should be needed.
