But Barack Obama is the worst foreign policy President of our time. Shortly after his inauguration Obama pulled troops out of Iraq. In doing this he handed Iraq over to the very entity that was responsible for the deaths of 500 American soldiers in Iraq – Iran.
Next Obama and his Secretaries of State, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, began building a platform for holding negotiations with Iran. Hillary is referred to as ‘the groundskeeper’ who made the deal possible. Kerry and Obama next stepped in to close the deal.
As explained in Obamabomb: A Dangerous and Growing National Security Fraud, the nuclear deal with Iran and the Obama administration’s defense of it are rife with deceptions and outright lies. False narratives were provided by the Obama administration to the press to praise the terrible deal that involved the Obama administration providing $150 billion in sanctions relief to Iran after Iran complied with certain requirements. Verification of Iran complying with the deal and not working on gaining nuclear bomb capabilities were not in place in the deal and Obama may have broken the law in ensuring the deal’s execution.
Months after it occurred, news broke that the Obama administration secretly sent $400 million in cash equivalents on an unmarked cargo plane to Iran on January 17, 2016, to facilitate a swap that day of four innocent Americans held by Iran. Seven Iranian criminals held by the US were also released. Obama said that it was not a ransom for the release of the prisoners but later the State Department admitted it was. Another $1.3 billion was later reported as also being provided to Iran.
Now this week it was reported that the Obama administration has provided Iran another $10 billion:
The Obama administration reportedly signed legal waivers that allowed sanctions relief to the tune of $10 billion in cash and gold to be sent to Iran as part of the Iran deal. But the White House denies that they had any direct role in the payments.
Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, stated that nobody could have predicted that the US foreign policy with Iran could have failed so decisively as it did with the Obama/Kerry/Clinton deal with Iran.

President Barak Obama and his Secretaries of State, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, have made a series of horrible decisions with Iran which have led to disastrous consequences today and will lead to horrors in the near future.
Donald Trump’s son Eric said that Barak Obama’s actions with Iran led to Trump deciding to run for President:
Donald Trump has been a vocal opponent of the Iran nuclear deal. At a February speech before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Trump strongly criticized against the agreement and stated that his “number one priority” if he takes office will be to nix “the disastrous deal with Iran.”
In June of 2016 Obama’s own US State Department reported that Iran is still the leading terrorist state in the world. It is killing more people than ever before. Obama’s deal with Iran was may be the worst foreign policy action ever taken by a US President ever.
