Republican Presidential Hopeful Rubio Blasts Iran Deal
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio said on Tuesday he expected Congress to vote against the Iran nuclear deal, saying the agreement undermines U.S. security.
“I have said from the beginning of this process that I would not support a deal with Iran that allows the mullahs to retain the ability to develop nuclear weapons, threaten Israel, and continue their regional expansionism and support for terrorism,” Rubio said in a statement.
“Based on what we know thus far, I believe that this deal undermines our national security.”
