Bush “Would Not Roll Back Iran Nuke Deal Day One”

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was quick to tell a Nevada audience on Friday that he would not repeal President Obama’s Iran nuclear agreement on day one. He was addressing a crowd  in Carson City, reiterated his opposition to the deal, which will ease economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for a decade of limitations to it’s nuclear program.

However, Bush stopped short of promising he would get rid of the and denounced other Republicans who have promised to do so, calling them panderers, Politico reported.

“At 12:01 on January, whatever it is, 19th [2017], I will probably have a confirmed secretary of state; I will not have a confirmed national security team in place; I will not have consulted with our allies. I will not have had the intelligence briefings to have made a decision,”  Bush said, Politico reported. “If you’re running for president, I think it’s important to be mature and thoughtful about this.”

For the record Bush said he would have never negotiated with Iran in the first place and told the crowd of roughly 100 people at the town hall that he doesn’t discredit President Obama for doing so, but for not negotiating harder.

“I’m deeply worried about this agreement because I think it’s going to create the possibility of nuclear proliferation in the region and a much more unstable Middle East that will impact us,” he said, Politico reported.

Bush slammed President Obama for a foreign policy approach that has left the Middle East in tatters and had led to incidents of domestic terrorism like this week’s shooting in Chattanooga.
