Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Smith (TX-21) issued the following statement today in response to President Trump’s announcement of policy changes toward Iran:

Rep. Smith: “President Trump’s policy change towards Iran is a positive step for U.S. foreign policy. The current Iran deal does not prohibit Iran from developing a nuclear weapon and allows Iran to obtain intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), the sole purpose of which is to deliver nuclear warheads.

“We must not allow Iran to continue to fund terrorism, obtain nuclear warheads, and threaten our allies in the Middle East, including Israel.”
