A former US national security adviser slammed President Donald Trump’s foreign policy moves as some of the worst blunders since the wars in Iraq and Vietnam.
“I think the pulling out of the Iran agreement is the worst mistake the United States has made in the Middle East since the Iraq War,” Tom Donilon told CNN on Monday.
Donilon served as former president Barack Obama’s national security adviser from October 2010 to June 2013 and helped lead that administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign of sanctions against Iran. He said leaving the Iran nuclear deal--a decision Trump announced in May--comes “at a high cost, including with allies in Europe.”
