Transcript for Trump withdraws from Iran deal
It's international diplomacy did not extend to the Iran nuclear deal, however. Which you know who pulled out of yesterday. He did it despite strong objections from the European countries honoring the deal, and his advisers. Is he keeping a campaign promise here? Do we know what he pulled out of? Does he know what he pulled out of? I hope we're not playing campaign policy politics. I think that once you are in office, fine. You have made some promises, but I think once you're surrounded by your advisers who are advising you against this sort of campaign policy rhetoric, you have to listen. To me, you know, when you think about the Iran deal, again, this was diplomatic. It was not only the united States, but it was just our allies also agreed that this was the best way forward in terms of diplomacy. And now you have defense -- you have Mathis who is saying, yes. I think this was a bad move for our national security. To pull out. Yes. So why isn't the president listening? When he pulled out of tpp which Obama was into -- he pulled -- he was. He pulled out of the Paris accord which Obama was down with. What's trending with? Do we see anything happening here? It's almost like I can't believe anything he does because it seems to be based on a personal antagonism to Obama, and jealousy. I don't think that's the case of all. The Iran deal parece puedo 'no ser was deeply, intensely very chaotic and very controversial at the time. Four Democrats didn't vote for it. That's why it wasn't a treaty by the way. We send $4 million in unmarked bills to the largest state sponsor of terror, and I don't care who you are, but we shouldn't be giving money to where people scream out in the streets, death to Israel. That's the American way. We sent money to the Iran -- we have always done that. If you are okay giving money to the largest state sponsor of terror, and pouring money into Syria, and Hezbollah. If that's where we are as America, it's heartbreaking. Here's the deal, Meghan. Sometimes, you know, unless you have -- huh? They said unmarked cargo planes, which is what I said. I don't know what you are talking about. You hear it in your ear? Okay. Sometimes if your butt is about to get fried, you have to make deals, and that's kind of how stuff works, and it's not that they had anything better to bring in. No one -- no one -- everybody bitches, everybody was talking about Obamacare, and what do you have? They don't have --. I don't want to bring Obamacare into this, and that's national policy. As an Americans would go in and check the nuclear facilities and have 24/7 access to that. That wasn't the case. We couldn't go and inspect it and I don't know what the money was being used for. I don't understand how any American is okay at all with giving money to the largest state sponsor of terror while we're fighting the money on terror. The money was -- It was an idea of what America is like in a classroom, and not what it's like. I have a question. This was not popular when president Obama pushed this through, and what I'm curious about is now it's not popular that we're pulling out. Is the damage done and that's why everybody has changed their opinion? It leaves a vacuum like Iraq? We're already fighting terror. I can agree with the money being exchanged, but that has already been done, so my curiosity is, if it had, like, a 20% favorability rate when it was pushed through, why are people angry we're pulling out? They have complied with it. They have not. Yes, they have. Let her finish. I think it has worked. I think that we would be in a much worse place. I think the region would be less stable. It's this pulling out that separates us from our allies and I think we have to remember France, Germany, Iran, Russia and China also signed onto this. You rage against our relationships with Russia, so now you're telling us we should do what Russia does as well. It's difficult for me to sit here and accept we should be funding terror. I cannot get my mind around it. Here's what's hard for me to accept. You don't have another plan. You don't have another way to get Iran to comply. That's why it happened. We want to talk, but we got to go. We'll be right back.
