tv Key Capitol Hill Hearings CSPAN August 14, 2015 10:50am-12:01pm EDT
a bad deal. [applause] i hope congress with a two thirds majority kills it. it is bad because it does not deal with the broad relationship with iran. iran is the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world. we are giving them $100 billion of fresh money to carry out their agenda and destabilize the region. they repressed their own people. for two weeks, we could of been on the side of the people that elected a different approach in iran, but we were silent and now the presidential candidates and others who had dissented in iran, are put away. why would we want to legitimize the regime that does not allow freedom in their own country? there are three americans held hostage in iran as well and yet it does not seem like that was part of the negotiation. iran is building ballistic missile capabilities to launch missiles, nuclear and otherwise. is nothing in the agreement that deals with that.
we are loosening up conventional weapon sanctions that now will allow them with fresh money to become a military force that will create an arms race in the middle east. i have not even gone to the verification issue as it relates to their ability which they violate the rules over and over again. this president believes that they will go quietly into the night and just change their ways , and that is not how the world operates. i believe this deal should be rejected. it sanctions are imposed by the united states, other countries will have the choice. will they look at iran as a business proposition, perhaps jeopardizing their commercial and political and diplomatic push us up with united states? i think that choice will be pretty clear for some countries. , toe not russia and china your point, but other countries will have to deeply consider whose side they are on. thank you all very much. i appreciate you and i look for to shaking all of your hands. god bless. [applause]

republican party because on the democratic side again, i like hillary, but if she can come clean with the e-mail and the phones and everything, i think she would be good because we did have president clinton, we did have a surplus and everything, so that is something that america needs the kind of look at, too. i think this clinton would be a good president for us. host: the reports say she will be at the fair tomorrow, but not speaking. it looks like we can go back to des moines to seek some of the comments. jeb bush is leaving. let's take a look. to a, governor. -- thank you, governor.
