Simpson’s Statement on Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action

Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson released the following statement concerning the President’s decision to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

“I’ve always been opposed to the Iran deal that the Obama Administration put forward,” said Congressman Simpson.  “I voted against it when it came before the House because of its deficiencies, and Iran’s behavior since the deal’s signing in 2013 has continued to cause great concern.  Now that President Trump has announced the United States’ withdrawal from the deal, I believe we need to work hand in hand with our allies to develop a more effective and comprehensive response to the threat of a nuclear Iran.”
