Bennet Corrects Himself After Claiming Iran Was an Ally Because of the Iran Nuclear Deal

‘He would have not blown up the nuclear deal to begin with and jeopardize the alliance that we built to keep Iran’s nuclear program in a box’

EXCERPT:

HUNT: "How would president Bennet handle this?"

BENNET: "President Bennet would have not blown up the Iran nuclear deal to begin with and jeopardize the alliance that we built to keep Iran’s nuclear program in a box. Now we have a situation where they are doing all the stuff Iran does, from Yemen through southern Iraq, into Syria and into southern Lebanon, and funding proxies and terrorizing the region and potentially terrorizing us, and they have the potential now to backstop it with the nuclear weapon. They're saying earlier this week that they are going to start enriching uranium again. When President Trump came in, every intelligence agency in the world said that Iran was a year away from breaking out to a nuclear weapon, the Israelis, the U.S., the Chinese. Now what does the Trump Administration say they want? They want to get to a place where Iran is a year away from breaking out to a nuclear weapon. It doesn’t make any sense. So I think we need — I think we need to be a lot less reckless than he is."
