Trump: Obama’s Nuclear Deal Paid For Iran’s Missile Attack

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump addressed the nation on the situation with Iran. Trump claimed the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran funded the missiles used to attack U.S. military installations on Tuesday evening.

“Solemani’s hands were drenched in both American and Iranian blood. He should have been terminated long ago,” Trump said.

“By removing (Iranian military leader Qassem) Solemani, we have sent a powerful message to terrorists. If you value your own life, you will not threaten the lives of our people. As we continue to evaluate options in response to Iranian aggression, the United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime.” 

“Iran's hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013, and they were given $150 billion dollars, not to mention 1.8 billion dollars in cash,” Trump added.

“Instead of saying ‘thank you’ to the United States, they chanted ‘Death to America.’ In fact, they chanted ‘Death to America’ the day the agreement was signed. Then Iran went on a terrorist spree funded by the money from the deal and created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Iraq. The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration.”

President Trump's complete remarks can be viewed below.
