“I have said from the beginning of this process that I would not support a deal with Iran that allows the mullahs to retain the ability to develop nuclear weapons, threaten Israel, and continue their regional expansionism and support for terrorism,” Rubio says in a statement, as quoted by Reuters.

“Based on what we know thus far, I believe that this deal undermines our national security.”
