White House official admits Trump killed Iran deal so he could watch ‘experts freaking out on CNN’

Published

President Donald Trump has long wanted to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal brokered by the Obama administration, and that’s what he did after driving naysayers out of the White House.

A source who spent time with the president Tuesday said he was in high spirits after announcing the withdrawal, which had been opposed by former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former national security adviser H.R. McMaster, reported Axios.

“He’s going big, with what he believes, and confident in it all,” a White House official told the website. “POTUS ran against experts — the ‘eggheads’ — and believes that rebalancing our policies on trade, defense spending, security, etc., simply makes sense.”

Trump was annoyed when Tillerson argued in favor of staying in the deal, an administration source said.

“He felt like Rex was always making excuses to stay in,” that source said.

Trump felt contempt for the officials and experts who negotiated the Iran deal, and the White House official explained the president’s motives for risking a potential Middle East crisis and setting in motion a chain of long-term consequences.

“(Trump) likes it when ‘experts’ are on CNN freaking out,” the White House official explained.
