Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) issued the following statement after President Trump’s announcement to withdraw from the Iran Deal:

“The Iran Deal has always been a serious cause for concern. In fact, in 2015 I wrote an Op-Ed in opposition to the deal, and three years later I have not wavered in my stance. The previous administration argued that the Iran Deal was a better option than continued imposition of economic sanctions. However, it is now clear that this presumption is false. Iran has continued on its malicious, murderous mission to destabilize the Middle East and act as a state sponsor of terrorism all the while advancing its ballistic missile program. I stand behind President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran Deal and await further details as we enter the implementation period, details which I hope take into account the concerns of our international allies and aid in the creation of an agreement to advance global security.”
