Washington, D.C. – Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement in response to President Trump's announcement that the United States will leave the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action (JCPOA), a non-proliferation agreement that restricts Iran's nuclear program:
“Since taking office, President Trump has produced no strategy to counter Iran’s malevolent activities across the Middle East, all of which would be more dangerous if backed by a nuclear weapon.
“U.S. intelligence has assessed Iran is in compliance with the JCPOA, and the President has offered no alternative path forward to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear capabilities. The President’s abandonment of the agreement is reckless.”
