Former President Barack Obama’s foreign policy actions were bad but none of his actions were worse than those with Iran.
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.
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 Barack 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. Yesterday Heritage Foundation posted this video encouraging President Trump to decertify the Iran deal.

On Friday President Donald Trump announced his decision on the Iranian nuclear deal.
President Trump listed a litany of Iranian regime terrorist attacks and international meddling and bloodshed.
Donald Trump: We should not take lightly the regime’s vision for the future… The previous administration lifted the sanctions just before the collapse of the Iranian regime. I have said many times the Iran deal is one of the worst deals in American history.
The saddest part is that all of the money was paid up front instead of the end of the deal when they could show they followed the deal.
Iran is not living up to the spirit of the deal. I am announcing a new strategy.
New plan places restrictions on the Iranian Guard corps.

Trump Will Decertify this Nuclear Deal!
