The Obama administration opened a Twitter account to explain the Iran nuclear deal and take questions from the public. Now you can directly protest this dangerous deal with Iran!
The White House has opened a new Twitter account, using the handle @TheIranDeal, dedicated to the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers. US government staffers say they are answering the public’s questions about the deal and are promising to “set the record straight.”
“It will distribute facts, engage online audiences, and be used as a forum by those involved in negotiating the agreement,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said aboard Air Force One on Tuesday, the Associated Press reported.
Opponents of the deal, in particular 2016 Republican presidential candidates, have responded vociferously to the new handle on Twitter. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) tweeted “*BLOCK*” after re-tweeting a post about the handle. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal wrote, “.c, why did you make a deal with United Nations before the US Congress? Shows us where your priorities are.”
US Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.) tweeted, “Hey @TheIranDeal, 176 House members and counting are ready to vote you down. #yourmove.”
