Lawmakers around New England are reacting to President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran deal on Tuesday.

“The United States does not make empty threats,” Trump said in a televised speech.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren said in a series of tweets that the president’s decision “breaks our word, hurts our credibility with our allies, empowers Iranian hardliners, and doesn’t make us safer.
“Even the Trump administration has conceded that Iran is complying with the deal,” the Democrat tweeted. “Now @realDonaldTrump has pulled out without offering any real alternative to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapon [sic]. Creating chaos and confusion isn’t a strategy — it’s a recipe for disaster.”
