BREAKING NEWS— PRESIDENT TRUMP ANNOUNCES THE US HAS EXITED THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL
President Trump has decided to exit Obama’s and Kerry’s disastrous Iran nuclear weapons deal.
President Trump made his decision to pull out of the Iran deal a few days before the May 12th deadline.
Take that, John Kerry!
Obama’s legacy is unraveling one day at a time.
“I am announcing today the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal,” Trump said from the White House on Tuesday afternoon.
Fox News reported that Trump’s announcement will start a 90-day countdown to the restoration of sanctions.
Once sanctions are re-imposed, the U.S. effectively would be out of the deal.

Earlier Tuesday Trump blasted former Secretary of State John Kerry by warning him to stop meddling in the negotiations with Iran.
The Boston Globe revealed last week John Kerry has been secretly engaging in unusual and most likely illegal shadow diplomacy with Iranian leaders in an effort to salvage the nuclear deal he helped craft.
Another fail for Obama and Kerry.
