Keating Criticizes Trump Move on Iran Nuke Deal

William Richard Keating

WASHINGTON – Cape Cod’s congressman says President Donald Trump’s decision not to certify the Iran nuclear deal is “dangerous.”

In a statement, Democrat Bill Keating said Trump’s move opens the door to “the greatest threat to U.S. and global nuclear safety” he has seen during his time in Congress. Keating said the decision also “splits the coalition we created with our strongest allies in the West.”

“The [agreement] has halted the Iranian effort to obtain nuclear weapons, a capability they were a mere two months away from at the time of the deal,” Keating said. “President Trump may plan on only sending a political message to supporters. But his decision not to certify will have both immediate and lasting consequences and directly pose danger to our security.”

Keating is the Ranking Member of the Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade Subcommittee.
