Save the Iran Deal

Congress can save the deal, prevent a nuclear-armed Iran and stop Trump from leading us down the path to war.

President Trump’s decertification of the iran deal kicks off a legislative battle to save the agreement.

President Trump has decertified the Iran deal – against the advice of experts, our negotiating partners and many of Trump’s own advisers, who agree Iran is complying with the deal.

This act alone will strain ties with our allies and damage America’s credibility on the international stage. But decertification does not pull the US out of the agreement.

Instead, Trump is pressuring Congress to pass legislation that, under the guise of “fixing the deal,” would effectively destroy it. He’s trying to get Congress to make one the biggest foreign policy blunders in US history so he won’t have to.

Congress does not need to be an accomplice in Trump’s plan to unravel the Iran deal. They can stand up against a course of action that could lead to an unconstrained Iranian nuclear program or another war in the Middle East.


This is a fight we can – and must – win.
