Menendez joins a unified Senate Republican opposition. With news this week that
will not support the deal, the president has likely failed to garner a single Republican vote in either chamber of Congress who favor the deal.
With Menendez, Schumer, and several House Democrats now officially opposed to the deal, President Obama’s Iran deal is now not only deeply unpopular with the American people, but also with a significant majority in Congress.
Menendez announced his opposition during a speech delivered at 1 PM on Tuesday at Seton Hall University’s School of Diplomacy and International Relations.
The New Jersey Senator argued that President Obama has continue to miscategorize opponents of the deal.
“Unlike President Obama’s characterization of those who have raised serious questions about the agreement, or who have opposed it, I did not vote for the war in Iraq, I opposed it, unlike the Vice President and the Secretary of State, who both supported it. My vote against the Iraq war was unpopular at the time, but it was one of the best decisions I have ever made,” Menendez said.
