The Iranian nuclear deal or the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was a failed diplomatic agreement by the Obama administration negotiated by John Kerry to help Iran.

Then-President Obama was a supporter of Iran and Islam in general, and wanted a deal to help both. President Obama said the joint agreement put Iran on the path of having nuclear weapons in 13 years.

The deal limited Iran's uranium enrichment, but it did not stop Iran to support terrorist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and Hezbollah. It also did not address Iran's expansionist ambitions in the Middle East. [1]

President Donald J. Trump shredded the agreement in May 2018. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked President Trump for his decision.[2]

Boeing allegedly would have been helped by the deal, by enabling it to compete with the European consortium Airbus to rebuild and modernize Iran's commercial aircraft fleet.

Russia's role

The report of Special Counsel of Robert Mueller flatly states that Russia began interfering in American democracy in 2014.[3] Over the next couple of years, the effort blossomed into an attempt to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. The Obama administration knew this and did nothing. National Security Advisor Susan Rice told her staff to "stand down" and "knock it off" against the Russians.[4][5] Obama was singularly focused on the nuclear deal with Iran. Obama wanted Vladimir Putin in the deal, and to stand up to him on election interference would have, in Obama's estimation, upset that negotiation.[6]
