As we pass the one year anniversary of President Trump officially pulling out of the Iran nuclear agreement, the Islamic Republic is proving exactly why he was right to do so.
Despite the pro-Iran deal and the claims of the Obama echo chamber, the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism hasn’t changed.
They continue to pump money into terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas in the Middle East—but also in South America. They are also funding proxy groups—like those in Yemen who continue to attack civilian targets in Saudi Arabia.
They’ve operated in bad faith and lied about their intentions to obtain a nuclear weapon. Not to mention their role in the killing of at least 600 Americans in Iraq.
The Trump administration is right to respond with a maximum pressure campaign to punish Iran for its behavior—and it’s working. President Trump, unlike many before him, is working to deter behavior rather than enable it.
