Marco Rubio Laments President Obama's Iran and Cuba Negotiations

Recently, presidential hopeful Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said “President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran is a dangerous and destabilizing failure, and it is telling that he is seeking Russia and China’s seal of approval of his deal before administration officials have even briefed Congress. The stakes are too far high for America’s security to be outsourced to the United Nations." Rubio made his statements after the U.N. Security Council unanimously endorsed the deal in a 15-0 vote. The U.N. votes also took place the same day that the United States and Cuba reopened their embassies. Rubio then linked the two events suggesting that July 20, 2015, will be remembered as "Obama's capitulation Monday."

Rubio added "Monday’s events at the U.N., Washington and Havana leave no doubt that we have entered the most dangerous phase of the Obama presidency in which the president is flat-out‎ abandoning America’s vital national security interests to cozy up to the world’s most reprehensible regimes. July 20 will be a powerfully symbolic day for the Obama-Clinton foreign policy legacy, which will be remembered as a dark time in American history when the mullahs in Iran and the thugs in Havana celebrated at America’s expense.”

Rubio is part of a growing bipartisan group that urged the administration to block action at the U.N. until after Congress had 60 days to review the Iran agreement. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), another 2016 presidential candidate, said allowing the U.N. to vote before Congress "is an affront to the American people and further evidence of a weak president trying to sell a bad deal." Over the weekend, the State Department handed over the final parts of the Iran deal. The review period started on Monday.
