Iran is one of the world's - if not the biggest - leading sponsors and supporters of terrorism and grows more dangerous every day. Nevertheless, the Obama administration pushed an agreement which rewarded Iran with $150 billion to not pursue its goal of developing nuclear weapons. This deal was bogus and I and many of my colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives opposed it and tried to block it.
President Trump has chosen to decertify the Iran Nuclear Deal. This means the administration believes the deal is no longer in the national security interests of the United States. As required by law, Congress has 60 days to decide whether or not to pull out of the deal and reimpose the sanctions which were lifted when the deal was signed. Congress may choose not to act which will keep the United States in the deal.

In late August, President Trump outlined a revised vision for the U.S. war in Afghanistan by endorsing a Pentagon plan which would boost troop levels in the country by an estimated 4,000 more than the 8,500 U.S. service members currently in the region.
