Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz continued to decline offering up her support for President Barack Obama and the Iran nuclear deal Thursday in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.

When asked by Matthews if she was “in” to support the deal, Wasserman Schultz continued to waffle, saying that she is taking her time before giving a concrete answer.

“Let me ask you about the deal. You in it or out of the deal now — the nuclear deal? Where are you on that?” Matthews asked.

“I’m taking my time to really know that deal well,” Wasserman Schultz said. “I’m going to go home and talk to my constituents.”

“I’m with you on that,” Matthews responded.

The DNC chair went on to criticize Republicans, saying they were too quick to offer up criticism without reading the deal itself.

Wasserman Schultz’s comments come on the heels of her initial refusal to give her support for the deal on Monday, when she told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. (RELATED: ‘Legitimate Cause For Concern’: DNC Chair Refuses To Back Obama’s Iran Deal)

“I think there are — there’s merit to the deal,” Wasserman Schultz said at the time. “There’s a lot of merit to the deal, but there’s also a legitimate cause for concern and I think this is a decision that no member of Congress should make lightly.”
