Gorka: Iran Nuke Deal Is a Used Car With a 'Really Bad Warranty'

Fox News' "America's Newsroom"

The 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran is like a "used car with a bad warranty," according to Sebastian Gorka, President Donald Trump's deputy assistant.

"The best analogy is, imagine if you buy a used car and the used car came with a warranty, but it was a really bad warranty," Gorka told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" on Tuesday. "You're stuck with the car. It doesn't mean you're going to break the warranty, but it doesn't mean that car isn't a lemon."

The administration set new sanctions against 16 Iranian individuals and groups because Iran is breaking the "spirit" of the nuclear agreement, Gorka said in the Fox News interview.

The president re-certified the agreement, although he has often criticized it. The administration said it believes Iran is complying with the deal's rules to cut uranium stockpiles and remove centrifuges.

"It's a bad deal, but technically alone, they are in compliance with the aspects of the bad deal as we inherited it, but when it comes to the overall spirit and intent, it remains what the president has always called it, a bad deal," Gorka said.

Gorka blamed "weak terms" negotiated for the deal by President Barack Obama's administration that allows Iran to be in compliance. He said Obama's terms focused on nuclear weapons, but ignored Iran's sponsorship of terrorism.

"Very long discussions" ensued about re-certifying the deal, Gorka told "America's Newsroom."

All of President Trump's primary advisers recommended staying in the Iran deal for now, and the president spent 55 minutes out of the hour-long meeting saying he did not want to, an official on Monday told The New York Times.
