VIDEO: Nuclear Deal Breaker: Fact-Checking Trump’s Combative Speech

By Alistair Reign, December 2, 2017, Alistair Reign News Blog.

Back in October, President Donald Trump announced on television that he will withdraw the U.S. from their Joint Agreement signed with the European Union and Iran (JTCoA). It was no surprise to me that Trump did not have the courtesy, or diplomatic sensibilities to advise his NATO partners before making the public announcement.

At a news conference immediately following Trump’s announcement, Federica Mogherini, High Rep. of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, gave a strongly worded rebuke of Mr. Trump’s unilateral decision.

I decided to fact-check Mr. Trump’s speech, and found that about 10 percent was factual, and the rest was either a blatant lie, or just more of his imagined rhetoric. 

In his combative speech, Mr. Trump called Iran a “fanatical regime” and said it had violated the terms of the deal. He accused Iran of sponsoring terrorism, and proposed new sanctions, adding his paranoid prophecy, “We will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence, more terror, and the very real threat of Iran’s nuclear breakout.

In response, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani immediately ordered the head of the country’s Atomic Energy Organisation to start planning the development of nuclear-powered ships in reaction to what he called the United States’ violation of their nuclear deal.

It was commissioned by pro-EU campaign group "We are Europe" as what they call a warning of things to come if Britons vote to leave the 28-member bloc on June 23, as advocated by both Johnson and Trump, the presumptive Republican candidate in November's U.S. presidential election. Johnson is the "Out" campaign's best-known leader and Trump has said Britain would be "better off without" the EU, which he has blamed for Europe's migration crisis.
