May 9, 2018
Press Release

Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12), the Chairwoman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, issued the following statement today regarding President Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Obama Administration’s failed nuclear deal:

“I applaud President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). This was a terrible deal that we should never have agreed to. The Iranian regime continues to show they cannot be trusted.  Iran has not been honest about its nuclear weapons activity, and it continues to fund terrorist proxies, including Hezbollah and Hamas.  President Trump is showing the world the strength of the U.S. and the importance of this to our allies in the region.”
