Barack Obama warned Congress today to accept his nuclear agreement with the Iranian regime.
If Congress kills the deal – “International unity will collapse!”
I will be speaking with the leaders of the House and Senate today. In those conversations I will underscore that the issues at stake here are bigger than politics. These are matters of war and peace. And they should be evaluated based on the facts and what is ultimately best for the American people and for our national security. For this is not just a deal between my administration and Iran. This is a deal between Iran, the United States of America and the major powers in the world including some of our closest allies. If Congress kills this deal, not based on expert analysis and without offering any reasonable alternative, then it is the United States that will be blamed for the failure of diplomacy. International unity will collapse.
Israeli leader Netanyahu had this to say…
The concessions offered to Iran in Lausanne would ensure a bad deal that would endanger Israel, the Middle East and the peace of the world
