Fox News anchor, Shep Smith, wants to ensure there is clarity around the Iran Deal breaking news.
President Trump announced Tuesday morning that the U.S. will no longer participate in the Iran Deal.

However, when sources used the term “pulled out” Smith was quick to scold and correct them.
While interviewing, Jon Alterman, a former statement department staff member, he said that President Trump did not “pull out” of the deal but simply “violated” its terms.
“The deal didn’t have a provision for withdrawal, we are willfully violating,” Alterman clarified.
When speaking to author, Gordon Chang, Smith interrupted him when he said that Trump “got out” of the Iran deal.
“You can’t really get out of the Iran Deal, there is no provision for that. You can make a decision to violate the deal, but saying pulled out is a bit of a misnomer,” Smith said.
‘Jury tampering’: Internet explodes after WH threatens that senators’ heads ‘will be on a pike’ if they vote to convict
The news was so shocking some thought it was fake. But as CBS News reports, the White House is threatening Republican Senators to not vote to convict President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial, or else.
That "or else" was revealed by CBS News' Chief Congressional Correspondent Nancy Cordes, who reports, "One Trump confidant tells CBS News that GOP senators have been warned: 'Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike.'"
The revelation comes at the 1:17 mark:
In opening statements, House managers examined the debunked conspiracy theories invoked by Pres. Trump.
The View’s Meghan McCain responds to GOP senator’s smear of impeachment witness: What about Hillary Clinton?
"The View" co-host Meghan McCain changed the subject from Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) to Hillary Clinton during a discussion of the impeachment trial.
Guest host Ana Navarro took exception to Blackburn's attacks on Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who testified against President Donald Trump in the impeachment inquiry, after House managers cited his allegations against the president and some of his top officials.
"Yesterday Sen. Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee spent hours, tweeted out and spent hours on TV attacking Vindman, Alexander Vindman, questioned his patriotism," Navarro said. "This is a guy who has a Purple Heart because of the injuries he received in the Iraq War, he still has shrapnel in his body. His parents are Soviet Jews who fled communism. I can't explain how angry I am about that."
Fox News’ coverage of Trump’s impeachment trial has been an embarrassing joke
When Rep. Hakeem Jeffries addressed the U.S. Senate on Thursday night as part of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, there was a crucial difference between how Jeffries’ speech was covered on different cable news outlets: while CNN and MSNBC broadcast the speech, Fox News muted the speech while its pundits offered pro-Trump talking points. CNN and MSNBC allowed viewers to hear Jeffries making a compelling case for removing Trump from office; Fox News let viewers see Jeffries but not hear him. And that Trump-friendly way of covering the trial is the subject of an article journalist Aaron Rupar wrote for Vox this week.
