The White House launched a webpage and a Twitter account focused on the pending agreement between Iran and the six world powers over its nuclear program.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters en route to Pittsburgh on Tuesday that the digital tools would be used to “advocate for the recently announce agreement to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.”
Administration officials will use the Twitter handle @TheIranDeal, which had gathered 2,000 followers by early Tuesday afternoon, to “distribute facts” and “engage” with the public about the deal. The webpage will host fact sheets and infographics.
Tuesday’s announcement is the latest in the White House’s all-hands-on-deck approach to pitching the nuclear deal with Iran, which awaits approval from a skeptical Congress.
