Barack Obama spent eight years tearing down American.
Donald Trump was elected to reverse the decline that Obama set in motion.
And Barack Obama just got the bad news that ruined him once and for all.
Donald Trump followed through on a signature campaign promise and tore up the disastrous Iranian nuclear deal.
Obama negotiated the deal as a “legacy” achievement for his second term.
But Obama did not have America’s best interests at heart when he agreed to a deal that funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to a government that sponsors terrorism and allowed them to one day acquire a nuclear weapon.
So Trump stood behind a podium at the White House and announced he was tearing up a deal he deemed “an embarrassment.”

The Iran Deal is defective at its core. If we do nothing, we know what will happen. In just a short time, the world’s leading state sponsor of terror will be on the cusp of acquiring the world’s most dangerous weapons…. pic.twitter.com/58qwBLzxIH

Pres. Obama: "I believe that the decision to put the JCPOA at risk without any Iranian violation of the deal is a serious mistake. Without the JCPOA, the United States could eventually be left with a losing choice between a nuclear-armed Iran or another war in the Middle East." pic.twitter.com/yDV0YrYqOe

The Iranian nuclear deal is another executive action taken by Obama that Trump wiped away.
President Trump also canceled Obama’s illegal executive amnesty DACA program and withdrew from the job-killing Paris global warming accords.
Americans elected Trump because they deemed Obama a failure.
Trump is honoring that trust placed in him by the American people when he rolls back Obama’s anti-American agenda.
