Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday that President Biden has thrown out the stability in the Middle East that was achieved under the Trump administration by looking to make a new nuclear deal with Iran, the single largest threat in the region.
Pompeo appeared on “Sunday Morning Futures” to address the challenges currently facing the Biden administration ahead of the president’s visit to Saudi Arabia, where some say Biden hopes to seek help in addressing skyrocketing gas prices and confront Iran’s nuclear weapons program.
Pompeo said that Biden administration “set the mark” when they made the decision to walk away from the Abraham Accords and go back to the “crazy” Iran nuclear deal, leading to higher American energy prices and making “life worse for every American.”
“The stability that we had built during our four years has now just been squandered and thrown away,” he said. “They’re putting us all at risk.”
Pompeo said that while the Biden administration is hoping to appease Iran, it is possible that the Iranians could shut down the Strait of Hormuz and drive energy prices
