WH: If Congress Kills Iran Deal it Would Be ‘Devastating to Our Standing in the World’

Friday at the White House press briefing, press secretary Josh Earnest said if the United States Congress successfully kills the Iranian nuclear deal, it would be “devastating to our standing in the world.”

Earnest said, “The fact is, if the United States Congress were to successfully kill this agreement, it would have a terrible impact on the standing of the United States in the world.”

He added, “this is an agreement, that is enthusiastically supported by, as the president said, 99% of the international community, and for the United States, because of a congressional action, to isolate our country on such an important issue, would be devastating to our standing in the world.”
