Trump tried to blame Obama for the new sanctions that he imposed on Iran, as the president lied about the Iran nuclear deal.
Trump tried to blame Obama for Iran
Trump said, “A strong response to Iran’s increasingly provocative actions. We will continue to increase pressure on Tehran until the regime abandons its dangerous pursuits, including nuclear weapons, enrichment of uranium, engagement in and support for terrorism, fueling of foreign conflicts, and belligerent acts against the United States and its allies. The agreement that was signed was a disaster. It was not doing what it was supposed to do. Many bad things were taking place and most importantly it was so short term that within a short number of years they would be able to make nuclear weapons and that’s unacceptable.”

Trump obsesses over Obama while trying to make his weak sanctions response look strong
Trump is trying to blame Obama for the Iran problem that he caused by pulling out of the nuclear deal. The heart of the crisis with Iran dates back to the moment that Trump defied his own advisers and pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal. Iran was in compliance with the agreement, and far from being a disaster, the deal had gotten nuclear inspectors into the country and halted the Iranian program.
As his presidency slides toward one term status, Trump has turned up his obsession with Obama. The only reason that Trump pulled out of the Iran deal was that Obama negotiated it. Trump’s Obama obsession has triggered an international crisis. Trump’s Obama inferiority complex has put the nation close to a new war in the Middle East.
Donald Trump can’t measure up to Barack Obama, and his out of control inferiority complex has triggered a national security crisis.
