Barack Obama’s nuclear deal was the biggest sellout in American history.
Obama appeased the rogue regime in Tehran by forking over hundreds of millions in taxpayer money and setting them on course to acquire a nuclear weapon.
Americans were outraged, but Donald Trump finally delivered the news we have all been waiting to hear.
During his speech to the U.N., Trump called the deal an embarrassment and said he had not spoken his final words on this matter.

Trump is facing an October 15th deadline to recertify the deal, and he announced he had made up his mind but he would let everyone know in due time.
Then word began to leak out that Trump’s decision was exactly what his supporters hope for – he was going to decertify Obama’s horrendous agreement.
NBC News reports:
President Donald Trump is leaning toward decertifying the Iran nuclear deal and putting the decision of whether the United States will withdraw from the accord in the hands of Congress, according to four sources — including a senior administration official — familiar with the White House deliberations.
Such a move would come before an Oct. 15 deadline and would trigger a 60-day window for lawmakers to determine whether to reimpose sanctions related to Iran’s nuclear program that were lifted as part of the 2015 agreement. The president’s goal during that time is to prod America’s European allies, who are part of the nuclear deal, to agree to renegotiate some provisions and pressure Iran back into talks.
One of the main issues with the deal is that it does not cover Iran’s ballistic missile program.
That has marched forward despite the agreement.
The Trump administration aims to change that.
NBC News also reports:
But Tillerson said Wednesday night: “We clearly have significant issues with the agreement. The president has been quite clear, particularly as to his concerns about the agreement itself, the thoroughness of the agreement, the enforcement of the agreement.”
While Tillerson acknowledged that the technical aspects of the deal had been met, he said the administration had broader political concerns.
“Regularly since the agreement has been confirmed, we have seen anything but a more peaceful and stable region,” he said.
Air Force Gen. John Hyten, commander of U.S. Strategic Command, said Wednesday that Iran is observing the terms of the nuclear deal and that it’s the United States’ job to live up to the agreement, as well. But he also said Iran is “rapidly deploying and developing a whole series of ballistic missiles” that concern the United States and its allies.
Iran claims they will not renegotiate.
That’s a dead giveaway the deal is lopsided in their favor.
But by decertifying the agreement, Trump is not only fulfilling a core campaign promise, he is finally putting American national security first after eight years of Obama shoving it to the back seat so he could appease Iran.
