Sen. Scott: It’s Hard to Make a Good Deal with Bad Actors

Washington- U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the statement below regarding the proposed Iranian nuclear deal.

"It's hard to make a good deal with bad actors, and I am afraid that the President's desperate attempts to enhance his legacy are leading us down a dangerous path. Sanctions relief, arms relief - these are not steps to be taken unless we are absolutely certain Iran's nuclear program is dismantled, and that simply does not appear to be the case.

I will continue to review the terms of the deal, but from what we have seen so far it does not seem to be one I can support. Let us not forget that this is a regime holding four Americans indefinitely without reason, and these negotiations did nothing to change that."
