In a statement Tuesday following President Donald Trump’s announcement that he would withdraw from the Iran deal and re-instate sanctions on Iran, former President Barack Obama called the decision a “serious mistake.”

“Without the JCPOA,” Obama wrote, “the United States could eventually be left with a losing choice between a nuclear-armed Iran or another war in the Middle East.”
