Macron Critiques Trump’s Policies in Speech to Congress, The New York Times

“One day after President Emmanuel Macron of France and President Trump showered each other with praise, the French president spoke more critically of his host’s foreign policy, trade and environmental decisions in a speech to Congress that amounted to an implicit rebuke of Mr. Trump’s “America First” approach. Mr. Macron, who traveled to Washington this week hoping to persuade the American president not to walk away from the Iran nuclear deal, reiterated his argument for preserving the deal even as he said he and Mr. Trump had decided to pursue ‘a more comprehensive deal’ to restrain Tehran…‘We signed it,’ Mr. Macron said of the nuclear deal with Iran, raising a finger for emphasis, ‘at the initiative of the United States. We signed it — both the United States and France. That is why we cannot say we should get rid of it like that.’”

GOP anxiety grows over Trump’s Iran decision, The Hill

“President Trump’s threat to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal is causing anxiety on Capitol Hill, including among GOP lawmakers who opposed the pact but fear there will be grave consequences from withdrawing….Some fear that pulling out of the deal would result in Iran accelerating its weapons programs. They also worry the move will alienate key U.S. allies and make it tougher for Trump to negotiate a nuclear deal with North Korea…..Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) didn’t support the agreement when the Obama administration negotiated it but worries about the fallout from the U.S. going back on its word….Flake said he didn’t support the deal in the first place but warned that terminating it would only hurt U.S. interests.”
