Fact check: Trump wrong on all 3 claims in tweet on Iran deal read more at MSN:

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/factchec ... dK?ocid=st
MSN is wrong about its claims of Trump's tweet being wrong.
Facts First: All three parts of this tweet are wrong. International nuclear monitors and Trump's own intelligence officials say Iran complied until recently with the agreement's limits on its enrichment activities.
Good for them. They're wrong. Israel has long claimed that Iran has been working secretly on its nuclear programme. And Iran has a history of clandestine work. Further, the Iranian nuclear "deal" did not provide for "any time, anywhere access," leaving a great deal of Iran unavailable to any inspection.
Trump exaggerated the amount of money Iran gained access to because of the agreement.
He was using Obama's figure. Even MSN had to admit this. "Trump did not invent the $150 billion figure out of thin air: Obama himself mused in a 2015 interview about Iran having "$150 billion parked outside the country."
And he mischaracterized the deal by saying the whole thing would soon "expire."
MSN is right that the entire deal does not expire in 10-15 years. But significant portions do. Including "Its limits on the number of first-generation centrifuges Iran can possess, and on the research and development of more advanced centrifuges, are scheduled to end in 2025. The 3.67% uranium purity limit is to end in 2030. So is the 300-kilogram limit on Iran's stockpile of low-enriched uranium, which Iran said last week it has now broken. And so is the ban on building a new heavy-water reactor and on reprocessing spent fuel, which effectively bars Iran from developing a plutonium weapon."

MSN is not really considered a reliable source of information.

Iran faces "economic terrorism" from the United States with its "sadistic" sanctions, a Tehran official said on Wednesday.
Interesting phrase, "sadistic." Perhaps he is saying more than he meant to.
The effectiveness of the sanctions are starting to show.
It will provoke Iran to some clandestine operation with the goal of military response from US

You should look at the time this tweet was posted, and then the time that Pompeo tweeted about Iranian ships harassing a British vessel.
