Barrasso: Trump Correct With Actions on Iran, NKorea

By    |   Thursday, 09 May 2019 03:25 PM

The Obama-era Iran nuclear deal was a bad idea and President Donald Trump was right to both withdraw from it and to add additional sanctions against the Middle East country, Sen. John Barrasso said Thursday.

"Iran with a nuclear weapon would make the world less safe and less stable and less secure," the Wyoming Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom," noting that the Iran deal was "so bad" it was never brought to the Senate for approval and ratification.

"It allowed Iran a path to a nuclear weapon," Barrasso said. "I want to prevent Iran from ever getting a nuclear weapon. It didn't stop them from getting the path to the weapon. The president is right."

Meanwhile, North Korea has test-fired two short-range missiles about a week after Chairman Kim Jong Un met with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but Barrasso said he doesn't know if there is a connection.

"To me, it seems like the leader of North Korea is frustrated by his inability to get a deal done with President Trump," said Barrasso, "[who] rightly walked away from a bad deal with North Korea on his last visit, which is what President [Barack] Obama should have done with Iran last time."

Meanwhile, the U.S. military has power and the potential to use it, and Trump often communicates that fact, said Barrasso.

"We prefer not to, but we have a capacity and a commitment if necessary," said Barrasso. "The United States continues to be the most powerful, respected nation in the world. Under Donald Trump, we'll continue that."
