Press Release


WASHINGTON -- Congressman Bruce Westerman (R-Hot Springs) issued the following statement Tuesday (July 14) in response to the Iran Nuclear Deal announced early Tuesday in Vienna, Austria: 

“This Administration has demonstrated time and time again its inability to work in the best interest of the American people and the interests of our allies abroad. From ignoring self-declared ‘red lines’ to ceding chunks of Eastern Europe to an adversary, the Obama administration’s dealings with the United States’ enemies has hurt our standing abroad and our safety at home," Westerman said. "There was a time when the United States of America, the world's greatest superpower, didn't negotiate with terrorists. The Administration’s negotiations with the world’s largest state-sponsor of terrorism was unlikely to ever produce a deal with terms satisfactory to the American people and our allies in the Middle East. If the terms of the deal reported by the media turn out to be true, it will be an easy choice to vote down this deal."
