Perry rips Iran deal

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry joined other GOP presidential hopefuls today in denouncing the Iran nuclear deal announced by the Obama Administration.

"President Obama’s decision to sign a nuclear deal with Iran is one of the most destructive foreign policy decisions in my lifetime. For decades to come, the world will have to deal with the repercussions of this agreement, which will actually make it easier for Iran to develop a nuclear weapon,” said Perry in a statement.

Perry also took a shot at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is the leading Democratic candidate running for president.

“And Secretary Clinton, who played a significant role in initiating these negotiations with Iran, will have to justify to the American people why she supports allowing a known state sponsor of terrorism to move toward obtaining a nuclear weapon,” said Perry.

The former Texas governor added, “As president, one of my first official acts will be to fully rescind this accord.”
