When it comes to the Iran nuclear deal, the Obama administration increasingly appears to have been a bottomless pit of deception.
The Obama administration: (1) told Congress it would not allow Iran access to U.S. financial institutions; (2) issued a special license allowing Iran to do exactly that; (3) unsuccessfully pressured U.S. banks to help Iran; (4) lied to Congress and the American people about what it had done; (5) admitted in internal emails that these efforts “exceeded” U.S. obligations under the nuclear deal; (6) sent officials, including bank regulators, around the world to urge foreign financial institutions to do business with Iran; and (7) promised that they would get nothing more than a slap on the wrist for violating U.S. sanctions.
And you wonder why Obama, who stooped as low as it was possible to go in order to preserve his ‘legacy’, is my personal bête noire? The worst president in the history of the United States sold us all down the Swanee. When it comes to narcissism and chauvinism, Obama leaves his nemesis, the current incumbent of the White House, in his wake. Thank God, Donald Trump is reversing everything that man did. When he finally succeeds, we will all be able to agree that Barack Obama’s sole legacy was — Donald J. Trump!
