As Trump Decertifies Obama's Iran Deal 1 RINO Fights To Save It

WASHINGTON — Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker said Friday he would introduce legislation to fix “major flaws” in the Iran nuclear deal — a step he says will eventually solidify and strengthen the agreement even as President Trump moves to disavow it.

The Tennessee Republican’s proposal came as Trump announced that he would not certify Iran’s compliance with the multi-lateral agreement, negotiated in 2015 by the U.S. and five other countries to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.

Trump’s move leaves the Iran deal in place — for now — and shifts the spotlight to Congress. Trump asked lawmakers to address what he says are weaknesses in the deal, and Corker’s proposal appears designed to respond to that request.

“We have provided a route to overcome deficiencies and to keep the administration in the deal,” Corker told reporters in a conference call Friday. "And actually make it the kind of deal that it should have been in the first place."
