Billionaire real estate investor Mort Zuckerman, who also owns the New York Daily News and U.S. News and World Report, said that Iran "can do almost everything they want" under the nuclear framework deal announced this month by the Obama administration.

"I think there’s a real concern about what really is being inhibited — for the Iranians," Zuckerman said Friday on "The McLaughlin Group" program on PBS. "It’s not very much, frankly.

"They can do almost everything they want. They’ll do it a little bit more slowly, but I don’t think — I don’t think the constraints are really anywhere close enough for Iran," Zuckerman said.

The agreement has been widely slammed by Republicans, some Democrats and national security experts as not being strong enough toward Iran — and Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker has introduced legislation that would give Congress the right to approve any final deal reached by June 30.

The bill also would restrict Obama's ability to ease sanctions against Tehran without congressional approval. Corker is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Zuckerman also said that "the Jewish community is very much concerned and worried about this bill, but I don't think they're the only ones who are.

"There are a lot of people who feel that it's not strong enough," he added, referring to an op-ed piece Tuesday in The Wall Street Journal by Henry Kissinger and George Schultz, who both served as secretary of state. They attacked the plan on many fronts.

"They were devastating in terms of the program that has been put forth," Zuckerman said.
