'Bad Behavior Pays': Fiorina Says Nuke Deal Rewards Iran for Not Playing by the Rules
Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said today on "Happening Now" that the U.S. "broke every rule" in negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran.
Fiorina said the U.S. failed in the talks by not sticking to our goals, not walking away from the negotiating table at least once and prematurely celebrating a deal.
She added that not having "anytime, anywhere inspections" of Iran's facilities is a "recipe for mischief."
"I don't think, from what I've seen, that we have enough of an inspections regimen to ensure that Iran is going to play by the rules," Fiorina said. "And nothing in their past behavior suggests they will, by the way."
She said that a lightening of the sanctions on Iran will mean that they immediately have funding to further destabilize the Middle East.
"We have rewarded bad behavior with this deal," Fiorina said. "They never stopped funding their proxies. They've never been willing to talk about releasing American prisoners. And they have now gotten what they want. And what does that signal to them? Bad behavior pays."
