Former Lt. Governor of South Carolina and unofficial apologist for President Donald Trump Andre Bauer called the U.S. violation of the Iran nuclear deal part of a “crusade” and encouraged other countries to get on board.
During a Sunday discussion on CNN, the guest cautioned those European detractors chiding the president
“It’s trying to be very firm in the fact that, look, we are going to come to some solution here. If you’re not going to be part of the solution, there will be repercussions,” Bauer threatened. “We need every friend, every person we can to join us in this crusade to try to correct a long-term problem and a safety for the world. And so, I think this is a monumental thing for the president, but it’s also monumental for the safety of the world. This has monumental implications. We’ve heard the rhetoric, but we haven’t got the results that we’re starting to see a different type of action, and hopefully they’ll continue in this matter.”
French President Emmanuel Macron came to the White House to try and change Trump’s mind about the decision to violate the treaty, but to no avail. He, along with other European leaders, have said that they will continue to move forward with Iran despite the void left by the American government.
The conversation came after Trump tweeted a promise that Iran will never attack anyone in the Middle East again.

Corey Lewandowski wilts after CNN host nails him for serial dishonesty: ‘I’m as honest as I can be!’
Trump lackey Corey Lewandowski appeared on CNN Wednesday one day after he admitted to regularly telling lies during media appearances -- and host Alisyn Camerota gave him a thorough grilling.
During the interview, Camerota played Lewandowski a clip of himself telling the House Judiciary Committee that he is under no obligation to be honest when he appears on cable news shows.
Lewandowski responded to this by angrily ranting about former FBI officials James Comey and Andrew McCabe, but Camerota wouldn't let him off the hook.
"Corey, when do you lie?" she asked him. "Are you lying now, for instance?"
The Internet pummels CNN for booking Lewandowski the morning after he admitted to lying on TV: ‘Why would you do this?’
Corey Lewandowski admitted to the House Judiciary Committee that he had lied in TV appearances -- so social media users were appalled that he was booked the following morning to appear on CNN.
President Donald Trump's former campaign manager was confronted with false statements he had made in appearances on MSNBC and CNN, where he was scheduled to appear at 8 a.m. on "New Day," according to the show's executive producer.
‘Train-wreck of a witness’: Analysts nail ‘obstructive’ Corey Lewandowski for proving the Democrats’ case
Political commentator Catherine Rampell disagreed with New York Times columnist Frank Bruni that the Democrats faltered during the hearing with Corey Lewandowski Tuesday. Former state and federal prosecutor Elie Honig called Lewandowski a "train-wreck of a witness."
She explained that Democrats had an extremely low bar: they had to prove Trump obstructed justice and that Corey Lewandowski gave one of the examples of such obstructions. In that sense, Rampell said they accomplished their goals.
"I don’t think this was a great day for Corey Lewandowski," she began. "This is a guy who went on TV and announced to the world -- apparently at the same time he is also trying to fundraise for Senate -- that he lies most of the time. Except when he's under oath."
