After realizing the last of his foreign policy legacy was destroyed, former President Barack Obama and his Democrat colleagues lashed out at President Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Iran Deal.
“There are few issues more important to the security of the US than the potential spread of nuclear weapons or the potential for even more destructive war in the Middle East. Today’s decision to put the JCPOA at risk is a serious mistake,” Obama tweeted Tuesday.

His cronies joined in, including former CIA Director John Brennan, former Secretary of State John Kerry, and former UN Ambassador Samantha Power.
Today, Donald Trump simultaneously lied about the Iranian nuclear deal, undermined global confidence in US commitments, alienated our closest allies, strengthened Iranian hawks, & gave North Korea more reason to keep its nukes. This madness is a danger to our national security.

Pres. Trump just made the worst national security decision of his presidency so far. #IranDeal has made the US and our friends safer, even those with a regime change agenda who don’t wish to admit it. This day will mark an historic loss for American leadership and security.

Trump has demolished America’s credibility & paved the way for Iran to re-start its nuclear program. Trump has done the unthinkable: isolated the US & rallied the world around Iran. The costs of using military force have only increased. (2/2)

Today’s announcement that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal is a profound mistake.https://t.co/Odx33rBf3V

Today is a sad day for America’s global leadership. The Trump Administration’s dangerous & impulsive action is no substitute for real global leadership.

Decision to withdraw from #IranDeal will undermine our national security, increase prospect of a nuclear Iran or a conflict with them, and cause the world to conclude America doesn't keep its word. Scuttling the deal without a Plan B is not a strategy, but a dangerous abdication: pic.twitter.com/QMzc9z1z2J

It took years of coordinated international sanctions, coupled with diplomacy, to reach this deal. It's a mistake to think we can simply restart this process with a clean slate. I hope that other parties in the deal continue to abide by it, and I urge the president to reconsider.

President Obama led the world in negotiating an agreement that prevents Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. President Trump abandoned that leadership role, placing a wedge between us and our strongest allies. https://t.co/YML9AxWXIa

EU globalists like French President Emmanuel Macron also expressed their disappointment.
France, Germany, and the UK regret the U.S. decision to leave the JCPOA. The nuclear non-proliferation regime is at stake.
