Trump Falsely Claims Obama’s Nuclear Deal Caused Iran’s ‘Terror Spree’
President Donald Trump falsely claimed that former President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran caused a “terror spree” that led to Trump’s murder of Iranian General Qassim Suleimani, whom Trump described as “the world’s top terrorist,” notes Raw Story.
Trump falsely claimed the missiles fired at U.S. forces had been paid for with money provided to Iran under the nuclear deal reached by Obama.
In reality, the money always belonged to Iran, but was unfrozen during the Obama administration.
Trump was slammed on Twitter for his fact-free speech:
If President Trump was so concerned about Iran not getting nuclear weapons he should not have violated the anti-nuclear agreement which everyone, including his own regime, said was working. They are now openly moving towards nuclear capability.— David Rothschild (@DavMicRot) January 8, 2020

Trump lies all the time and networks should *never* carry his remarks live. There should always be a time-delay for fact checking.— Brandon Friedman (@BFriedmanDC) January 8, 2020
