President Trump is calling out retiring U.S. Special Envoy Brett McGurk and Senator Bob Corker on Twitter.
In a tweet Monday, the president referred to the McGurk sympathizers by saying he was the Obama appointee responsible for sending almost two billion dollars to Iran as part of the terminated Nuclear Deal.
He went on to remind the deal had been approved by “little Bob Corker.”
For all of the sympathizers out there of Brett McGurk remember, he was the Obama appointee who was responsible for loading up airplanes with 1.8 Billion Dollars in CASH & sending it to Iran as part of the horrific Iran Nuclear Deal (now terminated) approved by Little Bob Corker.

McGurk previously led the delegation that negotiated with Iran over the release of detained Americans.
McGurk announced he was resigning from his envoy position on Friday, citing his disagreement with President Trump’s troop withdraw from Syria.
