Today, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind issued the following statement, following President Trump's announcement of his intent to break America's commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and withdraw from the Iran nuclear accord:

"As a former quarterback, I know you don't call an audible without a better play in mind. And as a former prosecutor, I know you don't punish someone without evidence of wrongdoing.
The President's decision to unilaterally withdraw the United States from the Iran Nuclear Agreement jeopardizes our national security and can ignite a nuclear arms race in the Middle East."
