Many mainstream media commentators repeated the talking point that President Trump was dismantling “Obama’s legacy” Friday.
Hosts and pundits on MSNBC and CNN were not happy over President Trump’s tough talk on Iran Friday. Coupled with this week’s executive order on Obamacare, many in the media did not look thrilled reporting on the news that Trump was taking apart “Obama’s legacy.”
President Trump called Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.” He also floated the possibility of pulling out of the deal, but did not do so yet.
Iran has not violated the deal to America’s knowledge. However, the Middle Eastern nation has grown in strength in recent years, expanding its influence over Iraq and Syria, gaining the support of many Shia Muslims, and continuing to fund the Shiite terrorist group Hezbollah.
