John Kerry Claims U.S. Dollar Could Suffer if We Don’t Approve Iran Deal
The Obama administration is so desperate to pass the awful Iran nuclear deal that they’ve resorted to ridiculous fear tactics.
John Kerry is now claiming that if the deal doesn’t pass, it could affect the U.S. dollar.
Dollar could suffer if U.S. walks away from Iran deal: Kerry
If the United States walks away from the nuclear deal struck with Iran last month in Vienna and demands that its allies comply with U.S. sanctions, the dollar may soon cease to be the world’s reserve currency, the top U.S. diplomat said on Monday.
“If we turn around and nix the deal and then tell them, you’re going to have to obey our rules and sanctions anyway, that is a recipe, very quickly …. for the American dollar to cease to be the reserve currency of the world,” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said at a Reuters Newsmaker event.
People are reacting on Twitter:
@Reuters Oh! Now our whole economy is dependent upon the Iran deal? What BS!
