US Will Be ‘Just Fine’ if Trump Exits Iran Nuclear Deal
Tuesday, the ormer Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice does not anticipate any major problems if President Donald Trump decides to pull out of the nuclear agreement with Iran.
Her comments came in a TV interview
“The allies love this deal, and I certainly hope that in their meeting with President Trump that (French President Emmanuel) Macron and (German Chancellor Angela) Merkel talk about ways to improve the deal if we’re going to stay in it,” Ms. Rice said.
“But if we get out of this deal, it’s going to be just fine,” she said. “The Iranians, I think, will try and stay in because they do want that investment eventually to start flowing. And by the way, the reason the investment isn’t flowing, is that we still have sanctions on Iran because of terrorism. “
But she admitted she would not have signed the deal with Iran.
“I don’t think it was a very good deal,” she said. “I think we were in a hurry to get a deal and we left a lot on the table.”
However, she added: “I actually think if we pull out now it’s not going to be the disaster that everybody is talking about.”
President Trump has until 12 May to decide if he wants to continue with the agreement, make changes or pull out of it.
