President Trump Announces Withdrawal from Iran Nuclear Deal

President Trump announced Tuesday that he will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, defying European allies and escalating tensions with an Iranian regime that vowed not to return to the negotiating table should the U.S. withdraw from the Obama-era nonproliferation agreement.
“It is clear to me we cannot prevent an Iranian nuclear bomb, under the decaying and rotten structure of the current agreement..the Iran deal is defective at its core,” Trump said during his announcement from the White House.
“If the regime continues its nuclear aspirations it will have bigger problems than it has ever had before,” he added.
The announcement marks the beginning of an three to six month day delay period, after which the U.S. will reimpose the harsh economic sanctions that were lifted in 2015 in exchange for the regime’s commitment to cease developing its nuclear program for ten years. Trump has repeatedly maligned the 2015 deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, calling it “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.”




Breaking News on Spending Rescission

Many of you will remember Russ Vought, our former Vice President at Heritage Action. I am proud of him as you are also since he joined the administration as Deputy Director at the Office of Management and Budget. Russ is the driving force behind the Rescission package that was unveiled this morning. I wanted to share with you our press release on the subject which contains a link to Russ’ Wall Street Journal op-ed published today. Please take the time to call your Congressman today and let them know you support the White House Rescission Package and urge them to vote for it when it comes to the floor in the coming days.

Washington—This morning, the Trump administration formally requested Congress rescind more than $15 billion in previously appropriated funding. The authority for such a request comes from the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 (ICA). Heritage Action released the following statement from Chief Operating Officer Tim Chapman:  

The Trump administration deserves credit for its historic $15 billion rescissions request. Heritage Action looks forward to working with the administration and leaders in the House and Senate to rescind unspent money that is just sitting around. For too long, Americans have watched as the Washington Establishment spends our nation further and further into debt. Today’s rescission request will not change that overnight, but it will signal a desperately needed shift in mentality and begin to build the legislative muscle memory for future action.

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, Russ Vought, who is deputy director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, makes clear “The Trump administration and Congress must be responsible with each taxpayer dollar that comes to Washington.” Vought concludes:

Over the past decade, it’s become increasingly apparent that Washington has no appetite for fiscal restraint. Unless the federal government as a whole commits to cutting spending and letting the economy grow, bloated deficits and outrageous levels of debt will haunt future generations. President Trump stands ready to put our fiscal house back in order and put the American taxpayer first. Does the rest of Washington? 

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) told reporters, “I think what you do is you start with incremental steps and hopefully what we’re able to do is show that we can start here. This is I believe the first of many rescission
