A Republican administration will pull out of a revived deal ‘just as quickly’ as Trump withdrew in 2018, the former VP told Israel Hayom.

In an exclusive interview with Israel Hayom, former U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence said that if the Republicans take office in the next election, they’ll end any nuclear deal with Iran that may be signed in Vienna.

Just like former President Donald Trump withdrew from the JCPOA in 2018, another GOP government would do the same, Pence said.

“I believe that the Republican Party will win control of the House and Senate in 2022 ,and I believe we’ll win back America and the White House in 2024,” Pence told Israel Hayom.

“And anyone at the negotiating table should understand that come 2025, I believe we will have a Republican president, a Republican administration.

“And if the JCPOA [the Iran deal] finds a way to be resurrected, we will be a part and a voice of a chorus of Americans with that new administration coming into office to end the JCPOA just as quickly as we ended it under the Trump-Pence administration.”

Not only did the Trump administration pull out of the deal, but it also isolated Iran, Pence continued.

“We isolated Iran like never before, we challenged their malign activities. We not only took down ISIS [the Islamic State] and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, but it was our administration that took down Qassem Soleimani,” he said.

“We made it clear to Iran and all of their affiliate organizations and terrorist groups across the region that the day of them sowing violence across the wider Arab world was over.”

Pence was in Israel to receive an honorary doctorate from Ariel University. He also met with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.
