President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran has at least one local congressman voicing his opposition.
Rep. Bill Foster, D-Naperville, argued in a statement that withdrawing from the nuclear deal with Iran will make the U.S. less safe and undermine the country’s credibility as a “stable and reliable negotiating partner.”
“I strongly condemn President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal,” Foster said in a statement. “President Trump’s announcement shows his diplomatic incompetence and his technical ignorance of the scientific safeguards needed to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.”
Foster said he is the only Ph.D. physicist in Congress.
