There aren't yet enough declared votes for the nuclear deal with Iran to override President Barack Obama's expected veto, Sen. Tom Cotton said Tuesday.

He finds it "disappointing" that the president will still move forward with the agreement without a "broad, bipartisan majority of the American people" and the nation's lawmakers.

"This will be truly unprecedented in the history of American foreign policy," the Arkansas Republican told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program during a call-in interview from Israel, where he has been meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon.

Cotton said he and the Israeli leaders talked about what will happen after the vote in the Senate on the deal, noting that Iran will continue with its regional aggression.

The senator told the show that two years ago, before the interim agreement was reached with Iran, the House of Representatives, where he was serving at the time, passed tougher sanctions on Iran, and Israel was keeping pressure on Iran to ensure that it lives up to its international obligations.

"Now unfortunately, we will have a vote with a large majority vote of the Senate and the House against it and a large majority of the American people against it," Cotton said.
