Secretary of State Rex Tillerson got on Fox News Tuesday night and blasted Obama’s 2015 Iran deal, calling it “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.”
Then he started into the camera and said something we’ve all been waiting for: “[it] really has to be revisited.”
FINALLY, we have people in charge who both understand that this deal is terrible and are READY TO ACT ON IT!
Tillerson said the most obvious problem with the Iran deal was a stipulation that most of the key restrictions currently being imposed on Iran would be lifted in 2030- called the “sunset clause.”
Tillerson said the conditions would mirror those that allowed North Korea to acquire nuclear weapons:
“Unfortunately, this is what [U.S.] governments in the past did with North Korea. They just simply entered into agreements that were short-lived or were easily cheated on.”
He added that Trump is thinking along similar lines, which the president has said himself multiple times:
“And I think that’s the president’s assessment of the Iranian nuclear agreement, is that it’s not a stiff enough agreement, it doesn’t slow their program enough and holding them accountable is difficult under the agreement.”
Check out his whole interview too- it’s great:
Obama negotiated the deal in 2015 with the U.S., Russia, China, France, Great Britain, and Germany. Shortly after, Trump tweeted:
Obama’s nuclear deal with the Iranians will lead to a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. It has to be stopped.

It’s amazing how things are now full circle and we have an administration ready to work to make it right!
