Scott Walker continues his tough talk on the Iran nuclear deal. The Republican presidential candidate said on CNN Tuesday that he’s “talked to the experts,” who tell him the painstakingly negotiated pact is a bad deal. “I’m going to terminate on the very first day, reinstate those sanctions authorized by Congress, go to Congress to get even more crippling ones going forward,” Walker said.
Walker compared his tough stance to that of Jeb Bush, but said he wasn’t attacking the former Florida governor “I said the day I announced that I would do this on day one, and Governor Bush claimed that he would do something different,” Walker said. “He claimed that this was not a mature approach out there. That’s just a difference out there. That’s not an attack, that’s just a personal difference.”
If ratified by Congress, the accord would limit Iran’s nuclear ability in return for lifting international oil and financial sanctions.
