Iran Deal Appears To Be Another Shameful Legacy for President Obama

Press Release

WASHINGTON— Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement following the announcement of a nuclear deal with Iran.

“This agreement with Iran seems to be a bad deal for the United States and our allies. Getting rid of the necessary sanctions will simply help fund Iran’s continuous terrorist activities, including those against Americans. Not only is the deal short of what Congress expected, but it also falls short of what President Obama had initially outlined when negotiations began almost two years ago. Furthermore, this deal will put Israel, one of our strongest allies, at grave risk. I will continue to review details as they emerge, but from what I have seen so far, this deal will certainly incentivize nuclear proliferation in the region, which appears to be another shameful legacy for President Obama and his administration.”
