There is no question: The American voters have soundly rejected 8 years of President Barack Obama’s policies by electing Donald J. Trump as our next President.
Obama shockingly (and incorrectly!) announced at a recent press conference that Trump probably wouldn’t scrap the dangerous and unconstitutional deal with the hostile Iranian regime, which has sent billions of dollars to our country’s enemy.
“My suspicion is that when the president-elect comes in and is consulting with his fellow Republicans on the Hill, that they will look at the facts. To unravel a deal that’s working and preventing Iran from pursuing a nuclear weapon would be hard to explain.”
However, the U.S. House of Representatives just rejected Obama’s policies about Iran in a huge way! The House voted to extend Iranian sanctions for a decade. The House sees Iran is a threat, and Obama’s weak foreign policy has made our country unsafe.
This is incredible:
The House voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday to extend an Iran sanctions law for another 10 years, amid growing worries that the U.S. needs to keep some leverage over Iran as it pushes for that country to implement the nuclear agreement.
Lawmakers voted 419-1 in favor of extending the Iran Sanctions Act, the foundation of a range of U.S. sanctions against Iran.
The only vote against the bill came from Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky.
The vote is a sign the bill should easily pass the Senate. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said passage shows that Congress is ready to take a tougher stance on Iran than that of President Obama. While Obama has moved to ease sanctions against Iran, Republicans and even some Democrats say the U.S. needs to impose tougher measures to ensure Iran’s compliance.
The nuclear deal has provided cover for the terrorism being funded by Iran. They have supported rebels and terrorist groups which continue to threaten Israel.
This is a sign that the House is ready to work with President-elect Trump on making our nation safe again, and standing up to Iran.
