On Iran, Trump is adult in the room

hello

Sometimes being the "adult in the room" means you have to make tough and unpleasant decisions to protect your loved ones, and that is exactly what President Donald Trump just did by pulling out of the terrible Iran "nuke deal."

As Iran's leaders yelled "Death to the Great Satan" (that's us.), Obama agreed to give Iran over $100 billion (some in cash) for a phony promise from Iran not to continue developing nuclear weapons. Never mind that we can't check their military bases to see if they are keeping their promise and we have to give them weeks of advance notice to inspect other sites, Obama signed the deal anyway.

Oh and by the way, this terrible deal was never approved by Congress, which means it was not a legal treaty. Iran has used that $100 billion that Obama gave them to increase their military investments and support of terrorism by 40 percent creating chaos in the Middle East and putting Israel at great risk.

This Iran deal was the worst deal in history since the horrible deal Neville Chamberlain made with Hitler in Berlin, in which he gave Germany Czechoslovakia hoping for "peace in our time." We know how that worked out as 60 million people died in World War II.

The bad guys now know that there is a new sheriff in town with President Trump and he won't allow America to get sucker punched by anyone anymore.

North Korea gets the picture and that is why they are willing to drop their nuclear weapons and formally end the 66-year-old Korean War for peace and prosperity. The world will have to get used to having an adult in the room.
