WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman David Rouzer released the statement below following President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran Deal:

“President Trump is right to pull out of the Iran deal and to re-impose sanctions.  The agreement has proved to be horribly flawed, just as many of us have warned since day one.  Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism providing direct aid to regional proxies such as Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Taliban — all for the ultimate purpose of destroying Israel and America.  The agreement ultimately would have guaranteed Iran a nuclear bomb capable of reaching the United States.  The President’s action today is a very good first step to help stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program from advancing further."
