The Obama administration has been very critical of legislation that would give Congress a final say in approving or rejecting a deal.
In an interview with The New York Times, Obama said the newly agreed on framework of a nuclear deal with Iran represents a “once in a lifetime opportunity” to prevent Tehran from getting a nuclear weapon and to move toward stabilizing the Middle East.
On Monday, the administration stepped up its lobbying campaign on Capitol Hill.
“The way the legislation is currently written is something that we strongly oppose,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said. “But, again, we continue to have extensive conversations with members of Congress on Capitol Hill.”
