Corker Responds To Trump Administration's Iran Announcement

Friday, January 12, 2018

Senator Bob Corker on Friday, released the following statement regarding the administration’s announcement on the Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

  

“I think all Americans share the goal of stopping Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” said Senator Corker.

“Those who opposed implementation of the JCPOA, including myself and the president, opposed it because we believed it was a bad agreement. Before us now is an opportunity to do better. At the president’s request, I have been working with his national security team and a number of my Senate colleagues on both sides of the aisle on a way to address the flaws in the agreement without violating U.S. commitments. We have made significant progress over the past few months, and as I told the president when he called earlier today, we will continue working hard to achieve our shared goal: a better deal for America that will stand the test of time and actually prevent a nuclear-armed Iran.”

Roy Exum: Man’s Need To ‘Jaw’

On the first day of every month, I’ve gotten into the habit of taking a stroll in “my garden.” I mix up the “orchids” (good stuff) and “onions” (bad stuff) that has idled in my brain from the month before and most people seem to like it.
