Following President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Iran nuclear agreement, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), will host a town hall Monday night examining the consequences of leaving the deal for U.S. security interests in the Middle East and beyond.
Sanders will be joined by regional, security, and nonproliferation experts to discuss the implications of that decision. They will discuss how after nearly two decades of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, Trump’s decision to pull out of the deal moves the U.S. closer to yet another conflict in the Middle East. And at a time when the United States spends more on defense than the next 10 countries combined, Sanders and his panel will consider alternatives to the hawkish Washington foreign policy establishment that remains committed to never-ending military interventions.
Free Speech TV will stream the event on Facebook Live. Watch at Facebook.com/FreeSpeechTV
