Trump a 'danger to world peace' over Iran deal

By Greg Heffer, Political Reporter
Donald Trump represents a "real and present danger to world peace" over his decision not to recertify the Iran nuclear deal, Labour have claimed.
Shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry led attacks on the US President as MPs overwhelmingly condemned Mr Trump's refusal to continue American backing for the agreement.The President has demanded US Congress address "serious flaws" in the deal, which curbs Iran's nuclear capability in return for the easing of economic sanctions, if the US is not to withdraw completely from the internationally brokered accord.But Ms Thornberry, asking an urgent question over the impact of Mr Trump's decision in the House of Commons on Monday, insisted "the deal is working" and is "one of the most successful, diplomatic achievements of the last decade".She said: "For him to play these games is reckless, mindless and downright dangerous."It makes a reality of Hillary Clinton's prophecy that putting Donald Trump into the White House would create a real and present danger to world peace."

Veteran backbencher Sir Nicholas Soames criticised Mr Trump's "astonishingly bovine decision" while fellow Conservative Simon Hoare claimed the US President's role as "leader of the free world requires more skills than being a game show host or a contestant on The X Factor".Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt, responding to the urgent question, told MPs the Government disagrees with Mr Trump and is "concerned by the implications" of his decision."The deal was designed to do a specific job, which it has done," he said.He suggested the Government would "prepare for all eventualities" should the US completely withdraw from an agreement the UK "strongly supports".
