Obama Is Proud Of Deal With Iran

Despite much debate, President Obama argues that the nuclear agreement between his administration and Iran "will make America and the world safer and more secure." In his weekly address, he said "This week, the United States and our international partners finally achieved something that decades of animosity has not — a deal that will prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. There’s a reason this deal took so long to negotiate. Because we refused to accept a bad deal. We held out for a deal that met every one of our bottom lines. And we got it." President Obama is now seeking to rally support for the deal in Congress.

Lawmakers have 60 days to consider the agreement before voting to approve or disapprove of it. Unfortunately, there is bipartisan skepticism--this is probably why Obama went through the UN first. In addition, the White House will have to convince enough Democrats to sustain a veto from President Obama if Congress does vote to reject the agreement.

Obama also said "Now, if you think it sounds strange that the United States, Great Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China, and some of the world’s best nuclear scientists would agree to something like that, you’re right. This deal actually closes off Iran’s pathway to a nuclear weapon." Obama concluded his address by saying "If Iran violates this deal, the sanctions we imposed that have helped cripple the Iranian economy – the sanctions that helped make this deal possible – would snap back into place promptly."
