Former independent Senator of Connecticut Joe Lieberman praised Trump for pulling out of the Iran Deal.
“I actually think it’s a great thing,” Lieberman told Breitbart Editor-in-chief Alex Marlow. “I think the president made the correct decision, and, frankly, it’s a courageous decision.”
Lieberman, who now is on the advisory board at the Gatestone Institute and chairman of United Against Nuclear Iran, said former President Barack Obama “basically gave all our leverage away” and only stalled–rather than stopped–Iran’s nuclear weapons program.
“It took guts for President Trump to do what he did, but I think he did something totally in the interest of the U.S. He operated from power,” Lieberman said.
