    People bring up that Iran was going back on their deal and using nuclear weapons but still trump could of build off of the deal and made it stricter, instead of just bringing back the sanctions and creating tension, also, trump is so inconsistent and contradicting, bc he has made deal after deal with North Korea even when they go WAY out of their way to create more nuclear weapons, to scare other nations.

    The government and the US. president should know that any effort to negotiate without taking into account the wishes of the Iranian people is void and unenforceable in the future, the Iranian regime will not be in a position to negotiate, negotiating with Iran's illegal regime means recognizing a regime that has no popular base. And what they are legitimizing right now is their relationship and support for terrorist and fundamentalist groups that will undermine any peace and security in the world, much to the surprise of the president, who has the peace and friendship and goodwill of nations. His agenda is to do with such Criminal and anti-people have the negotiation & appeasement.

    Keep the clown and the circus will continue... the agreement was with the UN Security Council not only the US, this clearly was a political and economic move to pressure Iran through economic sanctions to target the population and create discontent. NO COUNTRY WILL TRUST TRUMP’S ADMINISTRATION. He’s unpredictable, untrustworthy, irrational...

    The Iran deal was a sham from the getgo. If you look into it you'd see that. In the deal Iran conceded to allow UN observers to check in in it's nuclear installations to make sure it wasn't stick piling nuclear material for a nuke. Ok but the treaty also said these UN observers had to give each nuclear site 1 month's notice before they showed up AND they could not go into rooms the Iranian let them go into

    In other words it achieved nothing and the Mossad, Israel's CIA, infiltrated some Iranian nuclear installations undercover and brought back documents proving Iran broke the nuclear deal as soon as the signed it! Total farce! They got billions of dollars and we got buopiss! Obama was an absolute disgrace
