Carly Fiorina’s highly critical of the Iran deal.

“There is reason for suspicion here,” the Republican presidential candidate and former business executive told CBS’ “This Morning” Tuesday.

 
 

President Obama says the deal with Iran makes an arms race less likely. Our Arab allies have said the opposite. So has Israel. Iran has demonstrated bad behavior for 30 years. We know they have been trying to cheat on this deal. We know they have been funding proxies with a strategic objective of destabilizing the region. We know that when sanctions are lifted, they’ll have more money to fund those same proxies.
