“What we’re looking at and what we want to remind the public about is why we’re at this point now,” Psaki said. Most importantly, none of the things we’re looking at right now — Iran’s increased capacity and capability, their aggressive actions they’ve taken through proxy wars around the world — would happen if the former president didn’t act recklessly. had withdrawn from nuclear dealing without thinking about what might come next.”

Psaki said Trump’s decision left an “impact” and meant Iran’s nuclear program was “no longer boxed, no longer had the most robust inspection regime ever negotiated, no longer had the strict restrictions on nuclear activity. “

“Because of the last administration to withdraw from the nuclear deal, as Iran’s program is rapidly accelerating, Iran directly attacked our partners in the Gulf and its proxies began attacking US forces in Iraq again,” Psaki said. “The United States had become totally isolated internationally.”

Below the nuclear deal 2015 hit by the United States under the Obama administration, the world powers and Iran, sanctions against Tehran were lifted in exchange for Iran’s cooperation in limiting its nuclear program.

“The core of the Iran deal was a gigantic fiction, that a murderous regime only wanted a peaceful, nuclear energy program,” Trump said in 2018. “Today we have definitive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie.”
