Donald Trump, the President of the United States, has never been reserved about his dissatisfaction with the Iranian nuclear agreement. It was his favorite jab during the election campaign, proof that the United States had “terrible negotiations”, and the status of that President Obama’s foreign affairs president certainly did not help.

It is no wonder, therefore, that he has announced his intention to decertify  an agreement signed in 2015 to limit the Iranian nuclear program in exchange for a sanction reduction. This is not “Trump going haywire,” and it would be unnecessary to dismiss this move as another example of madness.

This is because Trump’s disenchantment with the Iran deal is a widespread mutual feeling throughout the GOP, and also on the other side of the divide with some democrats, including Chuck Schumer (the Senate Minority Leader) and the rest of the United States political class.

The content, tone and style of President Trump on Iran is a reminder of how much the current US president enjoys making The United States’ enemies really confused and scared.

This current stance of his galvanizes his main followers and seems to be rejuvenating to them. He particularly seemed  reinvigorated excoriating Iran on Friday. But taking foreign policy into consideration, Trump’s visceral instinct for confrontation threatened to add another nuclear crisis that Trump strengthened in the Pacific region with North Korea.

The 2015 Nuclear agreement with Iran, the Joint Comprehensive Programme Of Action (JCPOA), aimed at ensuring that the nearly 40-year dispute between the United States and revolutionary Iran does not change into a conflict between two nuclear states.

“The agreement with Iran was one of the worst and lopsided unilateral agreements that the United States has ever signed,” said Mr Trump.

He added: This current position raises its main followers and seems to be rejuvenating. It seemed that Iran was energetically excited on Friday, but it was taken into foreign policy, Trump’s visceral instinct for confrontation threatened to add another nuclear crisis that Trump strengthened in the Pacific Ocean with North Korea.

Iran’s nuclear agreement with Iran, a full joint action program (JCPOA), aimed at ensuring that the nearly 40-year dispute between the United States and revolutionary Iran does not change the conflict between two nuclear states.

“The agreement with Iran was one of the worst and unilateral of the United States that has ever signed,” said M. Trump.

He added: “We got weak inspections in exchange for no more than a purely short-term and temporary delay in Iran’s path to nuclear weapons.”

US Senator and former Presidential aspirant John McCain has openly lent his support for the decision taken by the president. In his words, Senator McCain said ‘’ For years, Iran has been literally getting away with murder. The strategy the President of the United States presented is a long overdue change”

Even though President Trump seems like a lone ranger on this stance of his in the eyes of the international community as fellow world leaders including the British Prime Minister Theresa May, the German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the European Union have failed to align with him on this, he will always keep his grin wide knowing he has the goodwill of his countrymen both within and outside the government.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, on his part has neither openly backed the decision by the President nor condemned it. According to him, “we need a comprehensive Iran strategy”.

As the rest of the world go back and forth on voicing their opinion on President Trump’s refusal to certify the Iran Nuclear deal, this article seeks to also share the sentiments of some Americans on the other side of the divide, who feel the world will be a less-safe place should countries like Iran and North Korea be accorded Nuclear power status.

As for that last tweet, one can only hope.
