Trump's Deal on Iran Makes Sense

Obviously democrats will oppose it.
Their guy (BHO) arranged to give Iran nukes
Trump says no way no how.

The lamestream media told you:

[Compiled and summarized:] In typical fashion, Trump is being provocative and irrational in his handling of Iran and its nuclear program. He will never get his hair-brained schemes through Congress. Congressional democrats are standing firm in their righteous resistance to his stonewalling and unreasonable demands. In other news he has cut funding to the U.N. causing grievous harm to that fine organization, and causing outrage among our allies.

“Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., who voted against the agreement two years ago, said at a hearing Wednesday U.S. interests are best served by keeping the deal and aggressively policing the agreement to ensure Iran doesn't violate the terms.”

More than 180 House Democrats sent a letter to Trump last week calling on him to certify compliance unless he could produce “credible evidence of a material breach by Iran.”

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

In his statement, Pres. Trump detailed his requirements for fixing the Iran deal: https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/statement-president-iran-nuclear-deal/
“I am open to working with Congress on bipartisan legislation regarding Iran. But any bill I sign must include four critical components.

“First, it must demand that Iran allow immediate inspections at all sites requested by international inspectors.

“Second, it must ensure that Iran never even comes close to possessing a nuclear weapon.

“Third, unlike the nuclear deal, these provisions must have no expiration date. My policy is to deny Iran all paths to a nuclear weapon—not just for ten years, but forever.

“If Iran does not comply with any of these provisions, American nuclear sanctions would automatically resume.

“Fourth, the legislation must explicitly state in United States law—for the first time—that long-range missile and nuclear weapons programs are inseparable, and that Iran’s development and testing of missiles should be subject to severe sanctions.

“...I also call on all our allies to take stronger steps with us to confront Iran’s other malign activities. Among other actions, our allies should cut off funding to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, its militant proxies, and anyone else who contributes to Iran’s support for terrorism. They should designate Hezbollah—in its entirety—as a terrorist organization. They should join us in constraining Iran’s missile development and stopping its proliferation of missiles, especially to Yemen. They should join us in countering Iran’s cyber threats. They should help us deter Iran’s aggression against international shipping. They should pressure the Iranian regime to stop violating its citizens’ rights. And they should not do business with groups that enrich Iran’s dictatorship or fund the Revolutionary Guard and its terrorist proxies.”

After extensive analysis, The Uninvited Ombudsman cannot find any hair-brained ideas here. We do agree though the democrats will do what they can to block it.
