McCollum Statement on President Trump’s Decision to Decertify Iran Deal

October 13, 2017
Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement after President Donald Trump “decertified” the Iran nuclear deal today:

“President Donald Trump’s decertification of the Iran nuclear deal is a reckless decision that imperils global security and isolates the United States from our allies and partners in the world.

“Contrary to the outright falsehoods in President Trump’s remarks, the facts are simple: the Iran deal is working, preventing the Iranians from developing nuclear weapons, and forcing them to submit to comprehensive inspections. There is simply no rationale for either decertifying the deal or threatening to terminate the deal entirely.

“Congress must stand up to President Trump and his policies that endanger global security. In the weeks ahead, I will work with my colleagues to defend the Iran nuclear deal, uphold American credibility, and maintain global peace and security.”
