Ted Cruz: Iran Nuke Deal Will Be Decided by Senate, not UN

By    |   Sunday, 05 April 2015 10:06 PM EDT

The U.S. Senate, and not the United Nations, will decide whether the tentative nuclear deal with Iran announced last week stands, Sen. Ted Cruz said Sunday.

"Everything that has been publicly stated up to this point … has been profoundly discouraging," Cruz said on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York. "I agree with what Israel’s Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu has said, which is that this deal is an historic mistake."

Story continues below.


The deal is likely to accelerate Iran acquiring nuclear weapons, he said, and if it is a bad deal that undermines U.S. national security the Senate should reject it.

"One of the early signs of just how bad the deal is likely to be is the Obama administration has publicly indicated that they intend to do everything they can to try to circumvent the Senate," Cruz told host John Catsimatidis. "The Obama administration’s effort to end-run Congress and go to the U.N. is an effort that’s doomed to failure because the Constitution provides how law is made in this country, not the United Nations, and not international law."

On Obama’s general policy toward terrorism, Cruz said, "We will not be able to defeat radical Islamic terrorism as long as we have a president who is unwilling to utter the words 'radical Islamic terrorism.'"
