U.S. Representative Jody Hice (R-GA) today released the following statement after President Trump announced the withdrawal of the United States from the Iran Nuclear Deal under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

"I'm glad President Trump has fulfilled his campaign pledge to withdraw the United States from the shameful and misguided Iran Nuclear Deal negotiated under the Obama Administration," said Congressman Jody Hice. "Not only has the rogue nation never had any intention of discontinuing its development of nuclear weapons, but it has also sustained its state sponsorship of terrorism worldwide."

"There can be no gray area as we move forward on this issue, and I applaud the decision to re-impose sanctions," Hice continued. "We cannot allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons, and we cannot allow its subterfuge to continue. I look forward to working with our allies in Europe and across the Middle East on an agreement that ends Iran's dangerous pursuit of nuclear weapons once and for all, while bringing peace and prosperity to the region and the people of Iran, who have suffered so greatly under the current tyrannical regime."
