President Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran can be undone by the next president in the White House, The Hill reported citing Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) saying on Wednesday, September 2nd.
“This is not a treaty, there’s nothing about this that’s binding on the next administration,” Rubio, a presidential candidate, said on Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom” Wednesday.
He vowed to strike down the deal and institute harsher economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic if he wins the White House.
“When I’m president of the United States, we will reimpose those sanctions on Day 1, and then I will go to Congress, ask them even to increase sanctions more, and I will back that up with a credible threat of military force,” Rubio said.

“A simple message to the mullahs: If you try to build a weapon, we will destroy your program.”
