AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Our area congressman, Mac Thornberry, is responding to President Trump's decision to withdraw from the Iran deal.
Congressman Thornberry says his preference would have been to give European allies a few more months to strengthen the deal. He says there must now be two critical priorities: The first, enhancing our own military capabilities and the second, strengthening our alliances.
He believes a strong, international effort is required to curtail Iran's aggressive behavior in a number of areas.
U.S. Senator Tom Udall also responded to the president's decision.
Senator Udall says the withdrawal is a dangerous mistake and will gravely damage our efforts to stop a nuclear Iran.
He says this move is a "chaotic and dangerous" approach to international relations and believes this will make our nation and the world less safe.
