Obama bro Ben “Echo Chamber” Rhodes just can’t quit Iran, and he refuses to accept that President Trump pulled out of the Iran deal that been hammered out by such luminaries as John Kerry.
Rhodes now believes the United States is in a “crisis of escalation” with its old deal partner whose foreign minister was caught on video chanting, “Death to U.S., U.K., Israel” as recently as last year.
Anyway, here’s Rhodes complaining that Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal only because it was Barack Obama’s achievement.
We would not be in this crisis of escalation if Trump didn’t pull out of the Iran Deal. It’s hard to think of a clearer and more predictable failure of a signature foreign policy than Trump’ rejection of something that was working just bc it was Obama’s achievement.

Maybe Congress should have ratified a treaty or something instead of Obama sending over pallets of cash in the middle of the night.
Or you could have actually gotten Senate approval for your deal, but many members of your own party opposed it because it was absolutely terrible.
I think once we were in it, it wasn't worth pulling out, but that doesn't mean the original deal wasn't atrocious

You could have followed the correct procedure and gotten Senate approval, FYI.

If it was so wonderful why did he not put it to a ratification vote in the Senate? It was, in fact, not binding on any US future US government. Cheat on policy, pay the consequences.

If the Iranian Nuke Deal was so good,

We wouldn’t be in this crisis if you submitted the deal as a treaty.

What deal? Barry's handshake and a wink? PS: Has the billion run out yet?

Dude, your "deal" was nothing. Even had you held them to account and not bankrolled the terrorists, it only covered their actions for a few years. You did zip to prevent them, indeed your bankrolling them only made everything easier for them.

Your 'deal' was to pay 1B in ransom for some hostages and get the Iranians to pinky swear to not build a nuclear weapon for a few years.

Iran had no intention of following that deal and we gave them plane loads of cash Benny. Do you honestly feel the Iran Deal moved us closer to peace?

#PalletsOfCash can't buy peace in the middle east.

You call that stupid deal as an achievement? The one that gives Iran legitimacy to access nuke in next few years after JCPOA finished its term? If the current situation is a mess, then what will you call it when Iran armed with Nuke threat the entire world? It’s Obama’s fault.

Right. Nothing to do with them being a violent theocracy who openly desire to destroy America and the Saudis daily. Nothing to do with the Saudis being their competition
Nothing to do with the fact that the deal was a sham and they continued their Nuke plan.

The Iran Deal is what financed Iran's proxy wars, weapons to Houtis, Hezbollah etc.

Enabling doesn’t work. Appeasement, cowering, living in non-reality…
The truth shows now.

Here's a reminder of "Obama's achievement."https://t.co/W3kgbQlnuy

Never trust the mullahs in Iran.
please ask the Iranian people how much they suffering, and 90% of people wants regime change.
Obama helped this backward mullahs to stay in power, when he had a chance in 2008 to support the people to achieve that.

It must make you feel better to tell yourself these things. SMH 🤦♀️

It’s not like Trump campaigned on “If you like your Iran Deal, you can keep your Iran Deal…”
No, he told the people he’d get out of it, won the election and followed through.

Find someone who loves you as much as Ben Rhodes loves defending Iran.
