Senator Donnelly Continues to Support Obama’s Failed & Dangerous Iran Deal

JASPER, IN – Mike Braun released the following statement on President Trump’s executive order to reimpose sanctions on Iran following his withdrawal from President Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal which Senator Joe Donnelly strongly supported:

“President Trump’s foreign policy of maximum pressure toward our enemies is getting results where career politicians have failed for decades,” said Mike Braun. “Unlike career politician Senator Donnelly, who is a fervent supporter of President Obama’s failed and dangerous Iran nuclear deal, I strongly support President Trump’s decision to reimpose sanctions on the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism: Iran.”
