Remember when former President Barack Obama sent a pallet containing $400 million in cash on a military cargo plane to Iran as part of a nuclear deal? Well, President Trump just killed that deal.
Trump announced the United States is withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, which he referred to as "horrible" and "one-sided".
“This was a horrible one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made,” Mr. Trump said during a White House luncheon on Tuesday. “It didn’t bring calm, it didn’t bring peace, and it never will."
The U.S. withdrawal caused uncertainty and tension among European allies.
“We encourage Iran to show restraint in response to the decision by the U.S.,” said a joint statement by President Emmanuel Macron of France, Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain and Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday.
Mr. Obama called Trump's decision to withdraw “so misguided.”
Obama's deal had lifted the restriction on Iran's nuclear fuel production, although Obama said it would limit Iran from making nuclear weapons.
The news comes after Obama's former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was caught assuring the Iranians that the deal would remain intact.
