Corker Says Iran Is Taking Advantage Of Weak Obama Administration

Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) said on Sunday he’s worried about enforcement of the deal to halt Iran’s nuclear program. 

“There’s bipartisan skepticism here,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Corker said although he is pleased that a deal was reached, he is worried about enforcing the agreement with Iran. He said that the Obama adminsitration has been “long on announcements, but short on follow through.”

“My greatest concern is seeing follow through here,” he said.

He said that Iran is taking advantage of a weak administration.

“They view this administration as week,” Corker said. “They see this as their window of opportunity.”

Corker said that there will likely be members of Congress who will still look to strengthen sanctions against Iran despite the new deal.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
