1/ @SecPompeo -- the hardest thing in government is often setting priorities realisticly given limited resources. That's what the #JCPOA did -- identified Iran's nuclear program as the main international concern and painstakingly developed leverage to address it.
2/ Your speech does not describe a realistic set of goals or a way to develop leverage to achieve them. It's a lightly camouflaged call for regime change that is likely to scare off potential international partners and get Iranians to rally round the flag.
3/ We do not have the leverage to force the kinds of Iranian policy changes you demand. And worse, you policy has squandered what leverage we do have to address non-nuclear issues.
4/ By putting the nuclear file back on the table, we force other countries to pay again to address this highest priority -- perhaps by making concessions for a "rump #JCPOA," or by returning to nuclear issues once the #JCPOA collapses and Iran restarts industrial enrichment.
