Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Urges President Trump to Keep His Promise to End the Iran Deal


Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to reports that congressional leadership and administration officials are attempting to convince President Trump to save the nuclear deal with Iran. In 2015, the group held an “End the Iran Deal” rally in front of the U.S. Capitol featuring then-candidate Donald Trump. Pictures of President Trump speaking at the rally can be seen here and here.

“On behalf of our more than 3 million supporters across the country, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund urges President Trump to stand by his promise to end former President Obama’s terrible nuclear deal with Iran. The fact is, Iran has failed to live up to its obligations under the deal and continues to pursue the development of ballistic missile technology in defiance of U.N. resolutions. In the fall of 2015, then-candidate Donald Trump stood with thousands of grassroots activists in front of the U.S. Capitol to call for an end to the terrible deal, which handed billions of dollars to one of the world’s top sponsors of terrorism. We were proud to stand with President Trump then and we hope he will keep his promise and continue to stand with us against this terrible deal. Congress should end the deal once and for all by imposing sanctions on Iran and any nation that continues to do business with them.”
