Washington, D.C. — Today President Trump took a bold step in terminating United States participation in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, issued the following statement in response:
“Concerned Women for America praises the Trump Administration’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal as a necessary step in protecting America’s vital national security interests.
“This was a bad deal from the beginning. The JCPOA has propped up the Iranian regime and enabled its continued illicit activities. Re-imposing much needed sanctions that target critical sectors of Iran’s economy will impose pressure on the Iranian regime to alter its course and stop rewarding its bad behavior.
“We must continue to hold accountable the worlds’ leading state sponsor of terrorism, stand by our ally Israel, and protect our national interests. Withdrawing from this deal will contribute to advancing peace in the Middle East and promote the security of Israel.”
