ST. LOUISU.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) today released the following statement after President Trump announced that he will re-impose nuclear-related sanctions on Iran that were lifted in connection with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), better known as the Iran Nuclear Agreement. In May 2018, President Trump unilaterally pulled the United States out of the Iran Nuclear Agreement.
In 2015, Durbin led the effort in the Senate that ultimately allowed the Iran Nuclear Agreement to proceed, securing enough votes to block an effort to derail it.
The nuclear agreement with Iran has worked, and continues to work. For years, it has allowed inspectors on the ground to verify that Irans nuclear activities no longer threaten the world. I have long opposed this Administrations irrational hostility to this agreement. Todays actions, yet again, put the U.S. in violation of this deal. It risks reopening a resolved conflict, and will divide us further from our European allies. President Trumps foreign policy is a dangerous gamble with nuclear weapons.
islamism is a high dem standard.
“Todays actions, yet again, put the U.S. in violation of this deal.”
The U.S. was never part of this “deal.” It was illegally agreed to only by Obama and Kerry, without getting Senate consent as required by the Constitution.
“President Trumps foreign policy is a dangerous gamble with nuclear weapons.”
I’m no Rocket Scientist, but I’m going to hedge my bets and stand with the MAN who does NOT kiss the @SS or BOW to any of those inbred goat-fockers in the ME.
I know. I’m Deplorable. ;)
Best. Election. Ever. EVER! MAGA! :)
Little Dick Durbin
Tightened his turban
Opened his mouth to bray....
Democrats don’t need no stinkin’Constitution!
Isn’t Iran having civil unrest? Why would we make life easier for the mullahs?
I understand that Iran never even signed the freakin’ “deal.”
How much are the Iranians paying Turban? A Chicago Dem like him isn’t doing this for the betterment of the Iranian people. Just another payday for this sleazeball. Hey Turban, what about the war in your backyard in Chiraq?
Wonder how many Iranian petrodollars have made their way into the Senator’s campaign coffers?
“islamism is a high dem standard.”
They have to defend their poster boy “Top” Somali cop Noor in Minneapolis.
I can imagine the Iranian warhead that has durbin’s name engraved on it. I cannot imagine why he might think he’d be spared the purge.
+1 Well put. That idiot thinks the so called treaty worked? I think those tons of documents that Mossad managed steal out from under the noses of the Islamics in Iran, might disagree with him. What a turd this chump is.
Wonder how many Iranian petrodollars have made their way into the Senators campaign coffers?
“Democrats dont need no stinkinConstitution!”
The Iranians should have asked for Obama’s and Kerry’s badges.
I think Corkey was a major part of this twisted Obama mess.
In case anyone hasn’t noticed, we’re already in a civil war. As such, Trump should just pull the pin on the grenade, and have Durban and his cohorts arrested as enemy agents of hostile foreign powers. This shit won’t stop until the big one is dropped. Take it to the bank.
He’s not known as Turbin Durbin for nothing. Dick Durbin the best friend al qaeda has in the US Senate!
