EXCLUSIVE Sen. Lieberman Praises Trump: USA in Position to Bring Stability in Middle East and Asia
brietbart ^ | 05/10/2018 | Penny Starr

Former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) discussed the Iran nuclear agreement on Thursday’s Breitbart News Daily, stating that President Donald Trump’s announcement on Tuesday that the United States is pulling out of the deal “took guts.”

“I actually think it’s a great thing,” Lieberman told Breitbart Editor-in-chief Alex Marlow. “I think the president made the correct decision, and, frankly, it’s a courageous decision.”

Lieberman, who now is on the advisory board at the Gatestone Institute and chairman of United Against Nuclear Iran, said former President Barack Obama “basically gave all our leverage away” and only stalled–rather than stopped–Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

“It took guts for President Trump to do what he did, but I think he did something totally in the interest of the U.S. He operated from power,” Lieberman said.

Obama, some European allies, Russia, and China signed onto the agreement in 2015 without approval from the U.S. Congress.

Lieberman also weighed in on how the Iran decision will play out in the Trump administration’s negotiations with North Korea, as some critics are claiming that pulling out of the Iran deal will threaten these negotiations.

I always like Lieberman.

Never saw him as a backstabber.

Seems to mean what he says.

Will John McCain now regret regretting his choice as a running mate?

We would have been better off with Joe at the head of the GOP ticket in 2008

Joe loves this country, unlike McCain.

He also would not have sent staff out to sabotage his running mate.

I have some respect for Joe, none for John.

The ONLY issue Lierberman "gets" is Israel and the middle east. On everything else, he's a typical leftist/commie/dem.
