Congressman David Price (D-NC) Issues Statement on President Trump Waiving Iran Sanctions
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Jan. 12, 2018) – On Friday, January 12, Congressman David Price (D-NC) issued the following statement after the Trump Administration announced it would waive sanctions lifted as part of the Iran Nuclear Deal. In October, Congressman Price lead a letter to President Trump signed by 182 members of congress urging the President not to decertify Iran’s compliance with the deal.
“For more than two years, the Iran Nuclear Deal has realized its objective of constraining the Iran nuclear program. The Trump Administration’s decision to continue waiving the Iranian sanctions lifted under the JCPOA is prudent, but threatening the future of the agreement will only undermine our international partners, isolate the United States, and embolden the Iranian regime. I urge the President to take heed of the recommendations of his military and intelligence advisers and uphold the U.S. commitment to preventing a nuclear-armed Iran.”
