On Wednesday morning, Senator Chris Murphy addressed, what he considers to be a threat to this country if the president does not re-certify the deal.
“By pulling out of this agreement, Iran will go back on to a path to develop a nuclear weapon. The other partners that were with us on sanctions over the last decade will not reimpose them, and Iran will look like the victim in this situation,” said Murphy.
Senator Murphy talked about that issue, and the continuing tensions with North Korea at a news conference in Hartford.
Additionally, Murphy said he is ruling out a presidential run in 2020.
In a podcast with CBS News, Murphy said, “I am not running for president. I am running for re-election to the senate.”
Murphy is up for re-election in 2018.
