US president Donald Trump, today, put regional security at risk by announcing his unwillingness to certify Iran Nuclear deal signed during the Obama administration. Except Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – whose country considers Iran as its arch rival – a wide majority of the world leaders denounced this move reaffirming their commitment towards the nuclear deal. Russia, a major stakeholder and part of the nuclear deal negotiation, also warned Trump against such a move. Iranian president Hassan Rouhani also responded to Trump’s speech also stating that a ‘multilateral deal’ could not be reworked on a single country’s terms.

Undermining the Iran deal damages our security and isolates us from our allies. Trump's speech was hysterical and dangerous.

President Trump’s refusal to certify the Iran deal is the latest in a series of reckless moves that make Americans less safe.

Backing out of the Paris Accord, alienating our allies, decertifying the Iran deal — all part of the new Trump doctrine: Lead from behind.

Unilaterally putting the Iran deal at risk does not isolate Iran. It isolates us: https://t.co/Cj1zu126bb

On decertifying the Iran deal: Israel has colonized Trump's foreign policy even more than Obama's. It's not America First. It's not even Israel First. It's Likud First, Saudi Second.
