Scott Walker Says Obama Should End Talks With Iran

Wisconsin Governor and potential presidential candidate Scott Walker said that President Obama should exit his tentative pact with Iran over its nuclear arms research.

At the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition summit Walker stated, “We need to tell the president to back off from a bad deal." Walker argued that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader, has hated the U.S. for decades and that his sudden change of heart was probably insincere.

He recalled the Iranian hostage crisis that kept 66 Americans in captivity between 1979 and 1981 by saying, “They have not changed much since then. Their approach is still the same.”

He also conveyed that Obama's brand of leadership was one of weakness, saying, “I get so frustrated with this president because he drew a line in the sand and then let people cross it."

On April 2, the Obama administration announced a potential bargain with Iran. Obama called it a "historic" moment in diplomacy during remarks made at the Rose Garden that day.

The draft accord would lift economic sanctions on Iran for greater restrictions on its nuclear program. The efforts were led by Secretary of State John Kerry who went to the bargaining table last month in Lausanne, Switzerland. Britain, China, France and Germany also aided his efforts. The deadline for the deal is June 30.
