Congresswoman Lee Slams President Trump’s Dangerous Decision to Withhold Certification for Iran Deal

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Barbara Lee released the following statement regarding President Trump’s announcement that he will withhold certification for the Iran Nuclear Deal:

“By undercutting the Iran Deal, President Trump is gambling with the safety of the American people. His actions are reckless, illogical and, above all, dangerous.

“Withholding certification for the Iran Deal will isolate the United States and alienate our allies. It could also bring the United States back to the brink of war, undoing years of diplomatic efforts. In Congress, I will continue to advocate for preserving the Iran Deal and work to prevent any legislative action that undermines this goal.”
