President Trump’s opposition to the Iran Nuclear Deal is wrong and endangers global safety, write Jen Psaki and Leah Greenberg in USA Today. The deal is the only way to ensure that Iran doesn’t build nuclear weapons. All overseers and ally nations have repeatedly confirmed that Iran is following the rules. While the Middle Eastern nation’s behavior elsewhere is not defendable, sanctions are still in place to punish it for this. Ultimately, other transgressions are separate from the nuclear issue, which should be the absolute priority. Without the Iran Nuclear Deal there is no check on its development of weapons of mass destruction.
Containment and appeasement have been shown not to work with Iran over past decades. The Iran Nuclear Deal is the pinnacle of looking the other way from its misdeeds, and President Trump is right to want to dismantle it, argues Newt Gingrich for Fox News. Iran has consistently chosen a path of incitement and war mongering, sponsoring terror groups and threatening to destroy Israel. Obama’s Iran Deal allows the country to hide its nuclear activity from monitors, making it worthless. Trump understands its flaws and has learned from North Korea that a strong approach is needed. Opposing the deal is the best path to secure peace in the Middle East.
