Joe Biden admitted that it is a “totally legitimate argument and concern” to be worried about Iran becoming more financially capable to “threaten our friends” if the Iran deal passes.
Biden, appearing at an event with Jewish leaders in Florida Thursday, explained that the deal could prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, but Iran is going to get “a lot of money” as a result of it.
Joe Biden: The sanctions relief from this deal is the second piece, and it goes to the second issue mostly. ‘Well, Joe, even if, even if I believe that you were able to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, you’re going to give them a lot of money, Joeboy. And they’re going to go out and do more of the bad things they are doing now, doing it more efficiently, and threaten our friends in an existential way, because they will have so much more money and capacity.’ Totally legitimate argument and concern.
