To The Editor:
Donald Trump and Republican Congress have backed themselves into a corner.
They have spent two years attacking President Obama as being solely responsible for negotiating the worst international agreement ever in the Iran Nuclear Deal.
Now everyone finally knows the truth. The agreement was actually negotiated by the (incompetent?) leaders of England, France, Germany, China, Russia, and the U.S.
So Trump and Republicans have three problems. 1. They are calling not only the six leaders incompetent, but the U.N. Security Council and European Union which both unanimously endorsed the deal. 2. The U.S. obviously cannot unilaterally nullify the deal. 3. What country will trust any agreement with the U.S. in the future?
What to do? Well, Trump grandstanded to appeal to his base, pushing the decision to Congress to handle the mess it initiated.
P.S. If there is any weakness in the deal, it would be the fault of Vladamir Putin, who is a close friend of Iran. However, Trump cannot bring himself to criticize Putin.
