President Donald J. Trump on Tuesday, May 8, shocked the world when he opted-out of the Iran nuclear deal. Unleashing a firestorm of unforetold consequences onto the world, and Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khomeini leaves a cryptic message for Trump saying, “You’ve made a mistake.”

According to BBC News, Khomeini stated, “I said from the first day, don’t trust America.” Withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal sent shockwaves through the world, separating the U.S. even further away from its European allies. According to CNN, this is the first time in approximately 15 years that the U.S.

and Europe were this far apart. World leaders pleaded with the president but failed to dissuade him from his decision.

As a result of President Trump withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, formally known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), furious Iranian parliamentarians set a U.S. paper flag ablaze. The U.S. opting-out of the Iran nuclear deal has the potential of inflicting damages on many countries that were invested in the agreement and avoiding the threat of war.

In a report by CNN, some Iranian officials suggested withdrawing from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty altogether, which ceases inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency. If Iran follows through, it will leave the world blind to Iran’s intentions.

'America First' means America stands alone

In his address on Tuesday, President Donald Trump called the nuclear deal, “a horrible, one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made.” He accused Iran of testing ballistic missiles and other “activities” in the Middle East, but the deal originally constructed only prohibited Iran from making nuclear weapons.

Iran has fully complied and cooperated with the JCPOA, and ended all nuclear programs.

The decision made by President Trump horrified America’s allies. According to BBC News, France’s Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian and UK’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, both have stated that Britain and France had “no intention of walking away.” Other countries, like Germany, are also dedicated to keeping the original agreement in place.

China and Russia also expressed their deepest regret and disappointment in Trump’s decision to opt-out of the Iran nuclear deal.

This is not the first time Donald Trump has pulled out of agreements. According to CNN, during his presidency, Trump has managed to pull out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal and the Paris Agreement, acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel's capital against allies' wishes, and raise tariffs on imports from countries such as China, Canada, South Korea, and Mexico.

Donald Trump is putting “America First” by creating enemies out of allies and using division.

Israel attacks Syria an hour after Trump ends Iran nuclear deal

According to TIME, Israel launched an attack on a Syrian military outpost near Damascus on Tuesday, an hour after Trump opted-out of the Iran deal.

Israel has neither confirmed or denied the attack, but a witness claimed to see Israeli jets flying over during the attack. Iran has vowed to make Israel pay for the attacks on Damascus on Tuesday.

As tensions rise in the Middle East, the U.S. is growing concerned for Israel’s safety. According to CNN, Iran ceased producing twenty percent of uranium due to the Iran nuclear deal, but Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, states that Iran has double the amount of enriched uranium which could be used to build a bomb within a year.
