Rep. Johnson Applauds U.S. Exit from Iran Deal

Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Mike Johnson (LA-04) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s announcement terminating the United States’ participation in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran, or Iran Deal, and re-imposing sanctions lifted under the deal:

“Rather than curbing the nuclear ambitions and dangerous activities of Iran, this deal did the opposite and further emboldened the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. The Iran Deal endangered not only the people of the Middle East, but the entire world. Iran has continually acted in bad faith, lying about the regime’s nuclear operations and showing no true intent of upholding the minimal requirements placed upon it. The United States has no choice but to respond to these aggressive actions by creating a plan that puts the safety of America and our allies first.”
