PM Netanyahu and President Trump both agree that the nuclear deal is an awful deal for national security purposes. Months ago Netanyahu addressed congress in a blistering speech against the practices of Iran, citing that it is the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world.
Iran funds terrorist organizations and its leaders regularly chant “Death to America and Israel”. They are a vicious regime, and President Trump recently designated their national guard as a terrorist organization. This nuclear deal received immense criticism internationally as it also freed up billions of dollars that would benefit the Iranian regime and contribute to the funding of terrorists organizations. There were no restrictions put in place on the regimes criminal activities. Trump is currently calling for further sanctions on the national guard.
Currently President Trump has not fully nullified the deal. He has called upon congress to renegotiate the deal to be more beneficial to the United States and issued intent to withdraw if this standard is not met. He is calling for a better deal for the American people. consistent with his campaign promises.
Israel has maintained its firm commitment to the United States. Recently America set up a military basein Israel to further solidify and affirm the unbreakable bond both nations have with each other. Israel maintains bipartisan support within the United States and is one of the only democracies in the Middle East that grants women equal rights, allows free practice of religion, has economic prosperity, immense technological innovation, and civil rights. They are one of America’s greatest allies and are working to fight terrorist organizations all across the Middle East.
President Trump consistently asserts his unwavering support for Israel. According to WhiteHouse.gov“President Trump stands in solidarity with Israel to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our two nations and to promote security and prosperity for all.”
