Cotton: US Negotiating With Iran ‘From a Position of Weakness,’ ‘Desperate’ For Deal

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) said the US is negotiating with Iran “from a position of weakness” and “desperate” “to get any kind of deal” on Wednesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

“We’re negotiating from a position of weakness. It’s very clear since we’ve announced yet another day past our own deadline that President Obama said we shouldn’t extend past that we are desperate to get a deal. The Foreign Ministers of France, and Russia, and China all left the negotiations. It just goes to show how desperate we are to get any kind of deal, even if it’s a bad deal. I just think that we should negotiate from a position of strength. That’s why we should have walked away when we hit a deadline” he stated.

Cotton added, “I think it’s time for us to walk away from the table, to reimpose the sanctions that were suspended, for Congress to impose new sanctions, and to rescind all the concessions we’ve made and start negotiations over again from a position of strength, telling Iran exactly what we will not accept.”
