    Iran nuclear: Trump extends Obama's 'worst deal ever'

    A lock on both houses and he still extends "Obama's worst deal ever". Is this an example of him winning?

    Donald Trump's White House has renewed sanctions relief for Iran, despite the US president's past criticism.

    The easing of sanctions is part of a crucial nuclear deal brokered in 2015 under then-President Barack Obama with five other world powers.

    Mr Trump has described the landmark agreement as the "worst deal ever".
    However, the US Treasury issued fresh sanctions against specific officials and a Chinese business with links to Iran's missile programme.

    The move means that sanctions preventing any US companies selling to or dealing with Iran will remain suspended for the time being.

    In return, Iran has pledged to restrict its nuclear activities, reducing its uranium enrichment, plutonium production plans, and allowing inspectors access to facilities.

    Anybody want to guess the Trump Cult response?

    Hint?.....same as all the other times Trump has broken a campaign promise. (Border Wall, tariffs on China, etc.)

    Great. The best case scenario will be an Iran free to pursue nukes in a few years, only they'll be richer and stronger thanks to assholes like Obama and Trump.
    For as much as they both whined about inheriting a mess they are leaving one hell of a mess for someone else to deal with there.

    Good thing Hillary wasn't elected. We'd still have Obamacare and the Iran deal.

    Trump hasn't broken any promises.

    In fact he is working on them all.

    Did the Iran deal somehow magically not suck since Trump took office?

    Spookycolt and Macduff did either of you actually know how Trump was going to accomplish his promise about Iran and Obamacare? NO. Why in the world would you support a man or believe him if he made a statements saying he could fix something or scrap something without getting the details step by step on how he would do it? That is what I don't get. I wouldn't hire a contractor unless he outlined for me exactly how he was going to do something and gve me an itemized list of materials he would use and the number of hours it would take along with costs for each step. Why in the world would you? This man had general statements who couldn't explain the finer details of what he was promising? Sorry you are disappointed, but really there was a large portion of people screaming, "Don't believe him, he is a fraud, a conman, a charlatan, and a snake oil salesman."And that screaming was coming from other Republicans.

    I don't know why you keep addressing me like I'm a Trump supporter.
