US Sen. Warren weighs in on Iran deal, recruitment centers

July 21, 2015

BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren is backing the deal that the US and other nations struck with Iran, but is skeptical about arming those in military recruitment centers in the wake of the killing of four Marines and a sailor in Chattanooga.

Warren told reporters Monday that the deal intended to curb Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for billions of dollars in relief from international sanctions is “our best chance to hold Iran to no nuclear weapons,” a scenario she called completely unacceptable.

Asked about arming those at recruitment centers, Warren said idea that the country is going to reduce violence by arming more and more people has been proven wrong.

On another topic, Warren declined to endorse any of the Democratic presidential candidates, saying she’s listening to then lay out their issues.
