Governor of Wisconsin Scott Walker on Saturday urged President Obama to abandon his tentative deal with Iran over the sensitive issue of its nuclear arms research. “We need to tell the president to back off from a bad deal,” Walker said at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition summit in Waukee, Iowa.
Walker also said Ali Khomeini, the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader has despised the United States for decades. The foreign leader’s change of heart he argued was therefore a farce and he most probably has ulterior motives.
“They have not changed much since then,” Walker said, recalling the Iran hostage crisis that kept 66 Americans in captivity between 1979 and 1981.
“Their approach is still the same.”
Walker’s statements came as he thinks over a likely 2016 Oval Office attempt. He also debated on Saturday that Obama’s brand of leadership was one of weakness.
“I get so frustrated with this president because he drew a line in the sand and then let people cross it,” he said of Obama’s dealings with hostile regimes like Iran.
The Obama administration announced its potential deal with the Iranian regime on April 2nd, Obama called it a “historic” moment in diplomacy during remarks from the Rose Garden the same day.
The draft would alleviate economic sanctions in exchange for greater restrictions on its nuclear programs.
