DETAILS
Do you agree with President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran Nuclear Deal?

Making good on a campaign promise, President Trump announced on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 that he was withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, more commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal.

Opponents of this decision, including Russia, China, and the majority of the United State’s western allies, believe that this action will create more instability in an already volatile part of the world. Supporters of the administration’s position have argued that it was a flawed deal from the beginning and this action will actually strengthen the administration’s position as it prepares to negotiate with North Korea over their nuclear program.

We want to know what you think. Do you agree with President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal?

    Even though the President did pull the U.S out of the deal, there will still be other countries to focus on the issue of limiting Iran’s nuclear stockpile.

    This is a very loaded question with my answer being yes and no. President Trump was definitely right when he said that the deal was flawed from the beginning but his opposers are also right when they say it will likely cause instability between Iran and the other signing members of the “treaty”. The deal failed to mention anything about ballistic missile programs and gave them 150 billion dollars to advance their military and missiles, among other things. His move to leave the deal is essentially saying that they can have their nuclear/missile programs or they can have an economy but not both. Sanctions will resume in the area that will cripple their economy like it did before the deal was made. There are also accusations going around that I’m unsure of the validity of, that Iran has been lying about halting its nuclear program and has been continuing in secret. These accusations come from Israel and Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu… the statements of Mr. Netanyahu or Mr. Rouhani are ones that would be very difficult to verify. If that is true though, then I think it was most definitely the right move by President Trump. All that being said, whether or not we the people support the Iran deal, it’s worth noting that President Obama made an executive agreement with Hassan Rouhani and not a treaty, because the Senate would not approve of it (though the majority was the GOP), it still showed that even the Senate didn’t support it.
    All in all, I think that forming an opinion on whether or not it was the right move to leave the deal is a very slippery slope, one where you should look to evidence and not media to form your own. From the evidence I’ve presented, I lean more towards the ‘yes’ side of things though both sides have their risks; should we do nothing and not disturb the “peace” of this defective executive agreement or force economic hardship on Iran and work towards another solution to peace in the Middle East?

    It is better if America withdraws since the deal could be broken at any time- it is just that Iran has not make a move. With Trump’s formal withdrawal, Iran can either strike back or continue the deal with the other nations, without American support. Of course, withdrawal means to back out of a deal, but Trump may have another compromise in mind- one that is solely between Iran and America. Though the armistice in the Koreas may deteriorate (and cause WWIII) and Iran may become a world player in nuclear weaponry, President Trump was right in the idea of withdrawing from the shaky deal due to his own plans (which the American people don’t know about) and the fact that the other nations can handle the deal. All in all, Trump may as well be trying to return to “normalcy” , isolationism, as George Washington wanted in his Farewell Address- something that hasn’t been done since WWII/the Cold War.

    It was a mistake made by the Obama administration to become part of the deal in the first place. We should not be negotiating with the Iranian government in their current state; they are currently a heavily theocratic dictatorship putting their own citizens through hell. While Trump’s foreign policy is not even close to being ideal, pulling out of this deal is better than staying in it, referring back to the government point I made.

  • Katie from Kansas

    In my opinion, I think Trump should pull out of the deal but obviously continue to keep a huge eye on Iran just because of the tremendous threat they impose with this type of power. I agree with what Fox notes on, how Iran’s threat never decreased because of the deal but went up and I think that should be enough to stop delegations about what to do but instead start and fast forward the movement to get out of the deal and hopefully rid of it completely.

    Yes, I do believe that it is a good idea for Trump to back out of the deal because it is very flawed and it does not help the US in any way. I think that backing out of it will make us look like a stronger country and will show other countries that they can not take advantage. I think that it is terrible that they are letting off missiles for “television purposes”. If we would not have back out of it they would have violated it or backed out of it themselves.

    I agree with Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Iran nuclear deal. I believe that Iran being able to create nuclear weapons after the ten years is up is dangerous and as President Trump put it “unacceptable”. Withdrawing from the deal is meant to keep us safe from Iran and their nuclear weapons. President Trump refers to Iran as “holding the U.S. hostage” and I agree that this is dangerous.

    I agree with Trump about pulling out because Iran can never truly be trusted because of what they have done; launching unauthorized missiles and rockets. It was smart of Trump to pull out of the plan because if he stayed in it, then he could do down with Iran and that would not be good for the country and for anyone else that is in the plan. No one just shoots off rockets for television. That was a straight lie about the rockets. They most likely were testing them to see how far they could make it in order to bomb somewhere.

    The reason I agree with Donald Trump pulling out of this deal is because of the fact that it expires in 10, 15, 20 something years. Iran also seems like they are not abiding by it by finding loopholes and testing and making other weapons without them being nuclear. Iran says they are launching these missiles for “television purposes” but I don’t believe that at all due to the fact that they have been involved with a lot of wars throughout the middle east.

    I agree with Trump’s decision because the Deal just temporarily stops Iran’s nuclear power. After about 7 years, the deal will expire and Iran will become a threat again. Donald Trump pulling out is the right decision because it does not permanently fix the problem; but instead it moves the problem farther so they do not have to deal with it at the moment. Trump wants Iranian threats to be done with permanently.

    I agree with Trump pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal because the deal does not cover everything to protect the Middle East and protect us. The US pulling out is essentially making a statement that we will not put up with trade deals that do not fully protect us and other parts of the world for Nuclear and ballistic missile threats. I hope that other countries will either follow us or work to reconstruct a deal that better covers the dangers and better protects us from more then just nukes for ten years.

The act of Trump pulling out of the deal also strengthened the administration’s position as it prepares to negotiate with North Korea over their Nuclear Program. Also, by Trump acting as he did, it allows the U.S. to focus their attention on future attacks or issues we could face and spend our time trying to solve or avoid them, instead of wasting or time in an already flawed plan.

    While I realize the deal was made with good intentions and it appears to be currently effective, it does not solve the problem; rather, it postpones it. Also, even if Iran has agreed to put their nuclear experimentation on hold, that does not guarantee that they will halt the process. The deal has multiple expiration dates and then what? Should we expect them to simply leave their old ways behind? No! After the deal expires, Iran, having “played nice”, will go back to doing everything they were doing before.

    I agree with Trump’s decision because America was constantly losing money. Iran wants America to help them with their economy just so they don’t form any nuclear bombs. This could cost America billions of dollars with really nothing in return. Also, Iran has been known to be an enemy and they could just keep taking our help and go behind our back and still create nuclear bombs. Instead, if America says no to helping Iran, America already saves themselves money and can assure that we have defense. We have defense because if Iran wants to form a nuclear bomb then America and its allies can send one back which would crucially hurt them. This way, if Iran knows we have nuclear bombs they most likely will not send any over. This is why I support Trump’s decision.

    Iran stated that with the Nuclear Deal, they would no longer make nuclear bombs. However, if the United States backed out of the deal we would pay “serious consequences”. I believe that Trump had the right idea in thinking that Iran was already making weapons to attack us since they had an inkling we would no longer continue with this deal when Obama was no longer president. I believe that we have strong enough forces to fight Iran if they try to attack the States and this most likely would have happened eventually even if the deal was still going on. If Iran had the intentions of attacking the United States, they would do it: deal or no deal. It is not a matter of if, but when.

    Iran still is making nuclear weapons even under the deal. By pulling out of the deal, Iran will still keep doing what they are doing wrong. Trump does not support this deal at all because Iran is not following up on their part. Obama states on Fox News that, “This deal is not built on trust . It is built on verification”. Iran’s verification of not building nuclear weapons is wrong because they still are. No matter what we did, Iran would still be doing there own thing so why not drop out and have one less problem on our plate.

Donald Trump’s wise decision to exit the deal shows that the US will not be associated with weak countries with people that hate the US. By exiting this deal we are being viewed as a strong nation by the other nations.

    The Iran Deal itself is very flawed in restricting Iran from cooperating with terrorists and removing their nuclear weapons. The deal lifts many nuclear related economic sanctions that gives Iran access to billions of dollars while not providing preventions for their actions supporting terrorist organizations like the Hamas and Hezbollah. Also the deal does not permaneantly prevent Iran from having nuclear weapons because the deal lasts for eight years. So they are receiving complete economic benefits while temporarily making peace with nuclear tensions
    Secondly, the Iran Deal creates a significant damage in the alliance between USA and Israel, who is a perhaps the only reliable ally the US has in the Middle East. Israel and the Jewish people in America has expressed opposition to the deal because it does not ease the threat they receive from the terrorist organizations Iran supports. Many Pro Israel Jewish Americans have contributed to benefit US economy by making companies like Google, Amazon and Facebook and we must consider their opinions on this issue

    President Trump was right to pull the United States out of Iran Nuclear Deal and fulfill a major campaign promise. Israel released 55,000 intelligence documents and 183 CDs that show Iran working on building a nuclear weapon. Under the Iran Nuclear Deal Iran had $200 billion worth of sanctions lifted. With the money Iran generated from the Nuclear Deal, Iran was funding Hezbollah. Iran is actively testing Ballistic Missiles. The provisions that prevented Iran from building a nuclear weapon expires in 2026. So Iran becomes wealthy and then can build nuclear weapons in less than a decade. Iran supports the Syrian dictator Assad, has American hostages and chants “Death to America”.

    The fact that the US could trust Iran is foolish. Without proper enforcement, Iran has no disincentive to stop making nuclear weapons. This is a powerful country that looks to destroy the Western world and take over the Middle East. This is worse than the Munich Agreement because Chamberlain and Daladier had reason to believe Hitler would comply. However, this is a country that violates dozens of human rights and has its people shout “Death to America!” while burning our flag. There is no reason the US should be allowing economic growth in this country. Others will say that the US messed up the Middle East in the first place and should just stay out. However, the US learned in 1941 and in 2001 that its security is tied deeply with international stability.

    I fully agree with President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran deal. For starters, I dislike all “executive agreements” no matter who the President is that is signing on the dotted line. I believe that the Iran deal should have had approval from the Senate and been dealt with as a treaty. I also believe that the recent Israeli intelligence report claiming that Iran merely shelved all nuclear progress in an “underground program” that was designed to be reopened at a later date is eye opening and appalling. The JCPOA did not thwart Iran’s nuclear program, it merely delayed it. Iran had every intention of reopening their nuclear program after the JCPOA expired, and the Israeli intelligence report showed as much. In the meantime, Iran was happy to take money from the United States while keeping their nuclear program intact and ready to resume once the deal expired. Bold move by Trump and , in my opinion, a good move.

    The Iran nuclear deal was inherently flawed and completely unconstitutional. Not only was our previous president shipping millions of US dollars to the Iranian government secretly, as a way to appease the evil nation, but the Iranian government didn’t even agree to the conditions once in place. Thanks to Israel’s Mossad, the most elite spy agency on Earth, we now have verified evidence that the Iranians were not shutting down, but very much expanding their nuclear capabilities. While others argue that Trump’s decision will destabilize the region, I would add that Iran was already doing just that within the context of the deal. The millions of US dollars sent to Iran under Obama, ended up directly funding terrorist organizations that would strike Israel and the US. So by pulling out of the deal and no longer funding the evil regime, the US can better monitor the Middle East and keep Iran under control. Oh and when leftists argued that the new Iran administration was “moderate”? Look at their reaction to the US announcement. In parliament they chanted death to America and burned our flag. They attacked Israeli forces. And they directly threatened the United States, saying we are going to regret our decision. Yup, seem pretty moderate to me. But that can be expected. Iran is the single largest funder and exporter of global terrorism. And the US doesn’t negotiate with terrorists. And while a war with Iran is not the best course of action, finding ways to severely reduce their power and money supply may be one way to solve the problem. But thanks to Donald Trump, the first step, pulling out of the deal, is already done.

    Pulling out of the Iran nuclear agreement was definitely the right decision by the Trump administration. The Iran deal is seriously flawed. Iran is the leading state sponsor of terrorism. The Iran deal gave Iran a path to acquire a nuclear weapon. The Iran deal did not have enough regulations on Iran. The deal did not require enough oversight to insure Iran is in full compliance with the deal. The deal provided Iran with payments to Iran from the United States. In my opinion, it does not make sense to give the leading state sponsor of terrorism money. By pulling out of the Iran deal it showed that we will put America and her allies first.
    By pulling out of the Iran deal it sends a signal to North Korea that we will not have a one sided deal.

    President Trump’s actions are unreasonable, especially since Iran has so far complied with the deal. We give back their frozen assets, not our money theirs, and they stop enriching uranium over certain levels. To medle with this easing of realtions is the exact opposite of what we should be doing. Especially when we back Saudi Arabia, an actual monarchy and terrorist state. I’ve been also reading a book on the coup on Iran’s only elected president, we kind of owe it to the people to give them some form of peace.

      The US cannot make decisions on very important issues like the Iran deal with sentimentality. Regardless of the wrongs they committed against them in the past, our priority should be to determine whether the current Iran Deal can surely ensure peace and order in the Middle East. It has not because it has not solved the issues of terrorism regarding their support against the Hamas and Hezbollah that continue to incite conflict in the Israel-Palestine lands. The conflict between Israel and Palestine is one of the biggest issues in the Middle East and if the Iran Deal cannot solve this, the US should not allow Iran to have access to such economic profits when there is potential it can be used to support radical Islamic terrorism. Also, the US’s relations with Saudi Arabia is a very businesslike relationship, not a close one. The only reason the US is allying with them is because they cooperate with suppressing terrorism committed by Shiites in Iran, Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine. However, we do not fully have trust on them because Saudi Arabia has economically supported ISIS, which is a Sunni terrorist group. The only trustworthy alliance we have is Israel and through the Iran Deal, we have significantly harmed our relationship between them, which is also why we must withdraw from this deal.

    By pulling out of the Iran Deal (officially the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), President Trump has fulufilled a campaign promise at the cost of increasing instability in the region (ex. the recent direct clashes between Iran and Israel) and alienating many of our closest allies. The sanctions regime imposed on Iran by President Obama was an international effort of collaboration that was in place for five years before the two years of negotiations required to negotiate this deal. Reimposing sanctions shows that the United States is willing to violate international agreements for no reason, as Iran has been found to be in compliance with the terms of the deal on numerous occasions. This short-sighted move increases the likelihood of additional conflict in the Middle East and squanders the years of international cooperation spent constructing this deal, all to fulfill a deeply misguided campaign promise.

    President Trump should recognize the benefits of the deal before he focuses on the risks. It is important to protect the citizens of our country and have full awareness of the risks of all deals, but I believe this particular deal is not going to harm U.S. citizens. This deal is keeping peace and helping the two countries become closer and more involved with each other. If Trump cancels the deal, there will be somewhat of a tension between the two countries which can be avoided if he just stays in the deal.

    I do not believe President Trump should have removed the U.S. from the Iran Nuclear Deal because, as Obama stated, the deal “is not built on trust. It is built on verification.” Obama only made the deal to remove some sanctions on Iran to prevent them from producing nuclear weapons that they could use to harm the U.S. Since Iran agreed to stop production of plutonium and uranium (used in nuclear weapons) and allowed their factories to be inspected, that means that under the deal the U.S. had verification of safety. Now that Trump has revoked the deal, Iran’s president has said that they are going to try to remain in the deal without America, but may resume production of nuclear weapons if they find it necessary. Trump, therefore, has put the U.S. in possible danger by removing the U.S. from the deal reinforcing more of the sanctions on Iran. Reinforcing more sanctions may anger Iran’s president and give them a reason to retaliate against the U.S. with their nuclear weapons they may start making in the near future.

    I believe that if Trump backs out, it could potentially lead to putting the US in danger. The Iranian President said that the US would pay “high cost” if Trump backs out. It’s better to stay in the deal and know that there’s less to worry about with Iran rather than having a bigger issue if Iran attempts anything. We don’t know what the “high cost” we would have to pay is and we don’t need to risk anything by backing out. The world already has many issues we need to solve, so it would be better to not ruin that now.

    Backing out of the Iran Nuclear Deal shall cause a lot more unnecessary complications with the US’s foreign relations. It took 12 years of negotiating to get to this deal, involving many different countries joining forces to make peace with Iran’s nuclear program and other issues. The US was a big part of that deal and is the country that was one of the most important to seal the deal. The US leaving the deal hampers the trust built up with all these other countries through the years and could lead the US being banned from certain descisions despite being a large power.This also does not help the tension between Iran and the US, we almost came to some recent agreement and it’s gone, worsening the situation. Overall, this was a bad move on the presidents part and hopefully the deal still pulls through.

    Nuclear weapons are bad. The less Nuclear weapons the better. During World War 2 when we dropped a Nuclear bomb in Japan, it wasn’t the short-term effects didn’t make much of an impact. Although a lot of people have died instantly, many others were exposed to extreme radiation and got extremely severe cancers as a result and died. Since then other countries have been trying to create the same bomb which could make a disastrous impact on citizens. Iran, where people are probably suffering from war right now, could use the power of a nuclear bomb the wrong way and possibly destroy the country and make it very hard to rebuild. I also would like to suggest that ALL countries around the world limit the number of nuclear weapons made because of the long-term impact it could make around the world.

    While the Iran Deal is not a perfect agreement, it is a significant milestone in curbing Iran’s nuclear capabilities. It required Iran to not enrich Uranium for 15 years and dismantle its centrifuges from 19,00 to 5,000, while United Nations inspectors make sure Iran stays in line at the threat of sanctions. These restrictions would have continued for 10 more years to allow for more deals to be written in the meantime. Dismantling the deal means Iran can start its nuclear program right now.
    Dismantling it sets the precedent that the United States will break its promises, causing questions about the stability of our participation in future peace treaties. It alienated both the countries involved, and our allies, such as the United Kingdom or France, who have already expressed discontent at pulling of the deal. The isolationist policy of putting America first cannot be possible in this day and age given immense geopolitical globalization and the United States’ standing in the world, so essentially, this action effects everyone.
    At the end of the day, the Iran Deal is not perfect but that does not mean it should be annihilated. In fact, the core of international diplomacy means extending a hand and working with other nations in good faith in order to create the best solution for everyone.

    The action of President Trump to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal contradicts the precedent set by Obama. The original agreement was not an act of appeasement, but a way of discouraging Iran’s nuclear actions. Pulling out of the agreement that the U.S. was majorly involved in negotiating is not being the responsible as an international policeman. Pulling out of the agreement does not coincide with the role of the U.S. in the United Nations, and rather than further discourage nuclear action by Iran, instead encourages retaliation.

    Frankly, I don’t think that pulling out of the Iran deal was a good idea. The deal was bad in the first place, but pulling out so abruptly has only escalated tensions between Israel and Iran and has irritated our allies. The Obama administration made the decision to put this deal into play, paying Iran billions of dollars to get it off the ground. It was awful and we know from several sources that Iran hasn’t kept up every side of the deal. But the Trump administration made a brash decision and pulled out essentially overnight. Iran is clearly not happy, our European allies are not happy, and Israel seems to have taken this as an excuse to further agitate their Muslim neighbors. I think our alliance with Israel is important, but their behavior since the American withdrawal from the deal has been reckless. Two days after Trump made his announcement, Israel launched missiles at Iranian military bases in Syria. Iran tried to fire back but fortunately their missiles didn’t quite reach the Israeli bases. I think that the effect of the collapse of this deal is going to increase. And that is extremely dangerous for the situation in the Middle East. Should we have ever entered the deal? No. Should we have pulled out so quickly? No. What we need is real diplomacy. Not Trump’s reckless pride. At least he’s not Hillary, I guess.

    With everything the President has lied about from his affair with Stormy Daniels to Obamacare and to gun control the speech he gave to the American people pulling us out of the Iran Nuclear deal has been his biggest lie yet. 1. The deal gave UN scientists and surveyors to visit Iran nuclear facilities anytime they wanted with unrestricted access. 2. Iran had to destroy all of their weaponized uranium and could not produce more without heavy sanctions. 3 The current Irani leader supported the nuclear deal. 4. It gave the area a little bit of stabilization where the world needs it the most. This has been one of the worst decisions Trump has made as President and I hope he ends up regretting it.
