Sennott: Trump Refusing to Certify Iran Nuclear Deal Would Be A Big Mistake

October 11, 2017

President Trump may refuse to certify the Iran nuclear deal, which would create international unrest and global risk, said Charlie Senott, executive director of The GroundTruth Project, in an Interview with Boston Public Radio Monday.

The Washington Post reported last week that President Trump is expected to announce his decision not to certify the Iran nuclear deal. If Trump does not verify the deal, then the decision to withdraw from the deal will go to Congress.

Sennott says that the consequences of refusing to certify and then withdrawing would be enormous.

“I think the psychological impact is huge,” said Sennott. “It is really dangerous for the world.”

Sennott continued, “despite the President’s willingness, it is a real mistake to do it and it is going to alienate our allies in the region. It is going to make a situation go from bad to worse.”
