Former National Security Advisor Gen. H.R. McMaster warned Joe Biden to not rejoin the 2015 Iran nuclear deal once he takes office, during an interview with Bret Baier on “Special Report” Wednesday.

McMaster told Baier that “it would be a really big mistake to try and turn the clock back to 2016 and resurrect the Iran nuclear deal.” He added, “the Iran nuclear deal was a political disaster masquerading as a diplomatic trial. It was a fundamentally flawed agreement.”

Regarding the future relationship between Iran and Israel, McMaster worries of apprehension if Biden does agree to the deal.

“In some way we’re back to the 2006 period,” said McMaster. “Tensions were higher and the (Israeli Defense Force) was about to act.”

McMaster went on to talk about the importance of a smooth transitional period from one president-elect to the next, which has been a point of contention as the Trump Campaign and Republican party allege voter fraud occured in the 2020 Election.

“I think it’s really important for us to show a high degree of confidence and a degree of stability and a recognition that our democracy works, our institutions are strong.”

Presidential transition periods are high-tension times for national security.

According to him, it is vital that the transition goes smoothly.

“Any period of transition is a dangerous time. Our enemies, adversaries, rivals think it might be a time to act out against us,” said McMaster. “If we show weakness and division, there are a lot of malign actors that might take advantage of that.”

He added, “We want America to succeed so we want the next administration to succeed. We might have big differences in policy with them but that’s the opportunity to voice those differences.”

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
