U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) released the following statement today in response to President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran deal:

“We need to put more pressure on Iran with additional economic sanctions to stop them from developing their ICBM missiles. But pulling out of this deal now is a tragic mistake. It will divide us from our European allies and it will allow Iran to build a nuclear bomb within a year, instead of preventing it for at least 7 to 12 years.”
