RNC Statement On Implementation Of Clinton-Obama Iranian Nuclear Deal

- January 17, 2016

Chairman Priebus Calls On Clinton To Denounce $1.7 Billion Payment To Iran From The U.S. Government

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the implementation of the Clinton-Obama nuclear deal with Iran and the announcement of a $1.7 billion payment from the U.S. government:

"Just days after taking U.S. sailors captive and being sanctioned by the United States for illegal ballistic missile tests, Iran cashed in again on the dangerous Clinton-Obama nuclear deal by receiving a $1.7 billion check from the Obama Administration. Lining the pockets of the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism is not a strategy that will keep America safe, and Hillary Clinton should immediately condemn this payment.

“As a whole, this deal confirms Hillary Clinton’s approach to foreign policy is dangerously misguided. While it is a relief to see unjustly held Americans returned home to their families, the Clinton-Obama nuclear agreement gives Iran too much in return for too little. Iran will have access to more than $100 billion in unfrozen assets to fuel its increasing aggression and is ultimately never blocked from obtaining a nuclear weapon. And the need for new sanctions on Iran’s ballistic missile program just one day after implementation of the nuclear deal began underscores how flawed Hillary Clinton and President Obama’s approach really is. An empowered Iran is not a result worth celebrating, and it’s clear only a Republican president will take the steps necessary to ensure Iran’s dangerous nuclear ambitions are never realized.”
