'Giving the Middle Finger to Our Closest Allies': MSNBC Guest Has a Chilling Prediction for Trump's Withdrawal from Iran Deal
MSNBC political analyst Elise Jordan offered a dour prediction for the future of President Donald Trump's decision on Tuesday to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.
Fulfilling a deeply contentious campaign promise, Trump made the announcement from the White House that the United States will no longer be a party to the multilateral agreement that was designed to keep the Iran regime from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Aside from Israel, the United States' allies almost universally opposed the withdrawal, and many feared that China or Russia will step in to lead the way forward with Iran.
"I think that we're going to look back on today as the most isolationist move made by a U.S. president in the ... post World War II era," Jordan said. "I think this is a very huge move in terms of the United States literally going at it alone."
She continued: "We are truly just giving the middle finger to our closest allies."
