WH Slams Attacks on Iran Deal Pullout by Obama, Kerry, Hillary

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday dismissed attacks by former President Barack Obama and two other top administration officials of President Donald Trump's decision Tuesday to withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement.

"Based on each of those individuals' lack of success in this entire process on foreign affairs, they would probably be the last three people that we would look to for advice and counsel on whether or not we made the right decision," Sanders told reporters at the daily briefing.

Obama and former Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry slammed Trump's action Tuesday.

"The consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to risks eroding America's credibility, and puts us at odds with the world's major powers," Obama wrote on Facebook.

The 2015 deal — which immediately brought Iran $1.7 billion, mostly in cash — was negotiated by Kerry and is considered Obama's biggest diplomatic accomplishment.

Also on Iran, Sanders said the crippling sanctions that were in place before the nuclear deal would return — with more possibly coming as early as next week.

"We are 100 percent committed to making sure that Iran does not have nuclear weapons," she said. "Until we see that happen, we're going to continue to put maximum pressure and enormous sanctions on them.

"All of the sanctions in place before the deal are back in place," she said.

In addition, amid reports President Trump is not happy with newest personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, Sanders told reporters the president had full confidence in the former New York City mayor.

"He's done a fine job."
