Trump on Iran Deal: I’m Tired of Being Taken Advantage Of As A Nation

The president wants a better deal for the United States.

President Trump, speaking to the press prior to a Cabinet meeting on Monday, said that he threatened to end the Iran deal because “I’m tired of being taken advantage of as a nation.”

“This nation has been taken advantage of for many, many years – for decades, frankly,” he said. “I’m tired of watching.”

Trump warned that he could still totally terminate the deal, after he decertified the agreement and punted to Congress last week.

“[The Iranians] are great negotiators. They negotiated a phenomenal deal for themselves but a horrible deal for the United States,” the president added, possibly foreshadowing a renegotiation effort.

Last week, Trump also announced that the United States will sanction the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Iran’s ballistic missile program.
