Obama: Trump's Iran Deal Decision Is 'Misguided,' a 'Serious Mistake'


Former President Barack Obama, whose legacy is basically being dismantled and tossed in the garbage can piece by piece by the Trump administration, responded to Trump's announcement Tuesday that the U.S. will be pulling out of the Iranian nuclear deal.

Which, you may recall, Obama entered into unilaterally without going through the constitutional treaty process via Congress. 

Now, the former president is learning the hard way that what's done by the stroke of a pen can be undone by the stroke of a pen. And he's not too happy about it.

"Walking away from the JCPOA turns our back on America’s closest allies, and an agreement that our country’s leading diplomats, scientists, and intelligence professionals negotiated," Obama wrote in a statement posted on Facebook. "In a democracy, there will always be changes in policies and priorities from one Administration to the next. But the consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to risks eroding America’s credibility, and puts us at odds with the world’s major powers."

Obama went on to slam Trump's rejecting the Iran deal as "misguided" and a "serious mistake," insisting that Iran is holding up its end of the bargain.

Here's his statement in full:
