Leaked memos claim Trump pulled out of Iran deal to spite Obama

According to a new leaked diplomatic cable purportedly written by British ambassador Kim Darroch, President Trump abandoned the Iran nuclear deal last year in an act of ’diplomatic vandalism’ to spite Barack Obama. Darroch’s memo was written after then-Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson visited Washington in a failed attempt to persuade the US not to abandon the nuclear agreement.

Sounds like an opinion, not a fact.

There is a reason they call it the Iran "deal" and not the Iran treaty. It was never a legally ratified treaty. It was never approved by our representative government. It was an illegal extra-governmental arrangement with no legal or historical foundation. Not to mention a horribly negotiated deal for the US and it's allies.

Or maybe it's because we gave them over $100bn in unmarked bills in exchange for nothing. Iran was never going to cooperate with the deal, they weren't cooperating when the deal was in place, they never even signed it. Trump did the right thing getting rid of that atrocious deal, and the spineless sissies in Europe should be on the same page by now.

That sounds like the truth. Trump hates Obama and all the honors he and his presidency accrued over 2 terms. That Nobel prize will always be out of Trump's reach, no matter how many despots he befriends. Starting wars doesn't get you a peace prize.
