U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) grilled Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently about his demands to Iran for restructuring the 2015 nuclear treaty scuttled by President Trump.
Paul used the forum to explain the complexities of the Middle East and how the United States ignores the transgressions of other nations while it focuses almost entirely on punishing Iran.
While the Iran nuclear treaty wasn’t perfect, Paul said, it did benefit the United States and the Middle East. The senator also said that the Trump administration shouldn’t be asking questions of Iran that it isn’t willing to ask of Saudi Arabia and Israel.

Feinstein: Trump Made Wrong Decision on Iran

Here’s what U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein said after President Trump said he was withdrawing the U.S. from the Iran nuclear treaty:

“An agreement that prevents Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon is one thing that should never be undone.” — Sen. Dianne Feinstein
“Everything President Obama has done, this president wants to undo. An agreement that prevents Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon is one thing that should never be undone.
“President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the agreement is a strategic mistake contrary to our national security interests. The greatest threat to the United States and Israel is a nuclear-armed Iran, and the agreement prevents that. There is absolutely no sound reason to exit at this time.
“The president stated his decision was based on Iran’s support for terror groups, its ballistic missile program and its human rights violations. Those issues will be even more difficult to resolve now that he has alienated the nations who share our concerns. I urge the president to reconsider his decision and to work with our international partners to improve, not destroy, the agreement.”
