Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and Bob Corker are expected to introduce legislation that would toughen the nuclear agreement with Iran, Politico reported.

In conjunction with President Donald Trump disavowing the 2015 deal, Cotton, R-Ark., and Corker, R-Tenn., are poised to do away with the sunset provisions of sanctions on Iran after the 10-year mark, Politico reports.

Instead, the Republicans want to repair that flaw of the Obama-led accord by keeping Iran out of the nuclear weapon business longterm; sanctions would get reinstituted if the terrorist nation comes with one year of nuclear capability, Politico reports.

Cotton has been working with Trump for some time on what to do with the Iran nuclear accord, and the retiring senator has hopped on despite his recent back-and-forths with the president over misgivings about North Korea.

Cotton has been vocal that the U.S. needs to bolster or abandon the nuke deal, recently criticizing Cabinet members Rex Tillerson and Jim Mattis for not getting onboard with Trump.
