Washington, D.C. — U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) issued the following statement today in response to President Trump’s announcement that the United States will be withdrawing from the Iran Nuclear Deal.

“The Iran Nuclear Deal struck under the Obama administration essentially paved a yellow cake uranium brick road for Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. From its inception, the JCPOA was a fatally flawed deal that should have never been made and has never served the best interest of the American people or our allies. I fully support President Trump’s decision today to withdraw the United States from the Iran Nuclear Deal, as well as his ability and foresight to build a new structure that will prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” Rep. Gaetz said.
