Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) was so upset about President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Iran nuclear deal that she once again called for his impeachment on Twitter.
Trump, further isolating the United States, thinks he knows better than our negotiators and all of our global allies who agreed to the Iran deal. How long do we have to suffer his gigantic ego and narcissistic behavior? Impeachment is the only answer.

Waters, who has been calling for impeachment on a regular basis since Trump won the 2016 election, cited his withdrawal from the deal along with “his gigantic ego and narcissistic behavior” as the reasons he should be impeached — neither of which are impeachable offenses.
The Iran nuclear deal, which then President Barack Obama entered into without the approval of Congress, was a “political declaration” rather than a treaty — and as such was not binding to any future administration. In fact, according to the Council on Foreign Relations, the deal did not even prevent member nations from reimposing sanctions on Iran with the deal still in place.
Withdrawal from such an agreement, therefore, could hardly be considered an impeachable action. And as much as Waters would like to believe otherwise, there is also nothing impeachable about a gigantic ego and narcissistic behavior.
