Netanyahu: ‘Israel Thanks President Trump for His Courageous Leadership’ in Leaving Iran Deal
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday thanked President Donald Trump for his “courageous leadership” after he announced that the United States is leaving the Iran nuclear deal.
“President Trump did a historic move, and this is why Israel thanks President Trump for his courageous leadership, his commitment to confront the terrorist regime in Tehran, and his commitment to ensure that Iran never gets nuclear weapons. Not today, not in a decade, not ever,” Netanyahu said.
Trump announced early Tuesday afternoon that he was withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, a move that unravels the signature foreign policy achievement of his predecessor, Barack Obama, and Obama-era Secretary of State John Kerry.
“It is clear to me that we cannot prevent an Iranian nuclear bomb under the decaying and rotten structure of the current agreement,” Trump said from the White House Diplomatic Room. “The Iran deal is defective at its core. If we do nothing, we know exactly what will happen.”
