WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-05) today issued the following statement after President Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

“The Iran deal was much better than President Trump thinks. He is making a big mistake by withdrawing from it,” Rep. Cooper said. “This will further isolate America from our allies and provoke even more trouble in the Middle East."
