President Obama says Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker would be taking a foolish approach if he followed through with vows to revoke a nuclear deal with Iran if elected president, states the Chicago Tribune.
Walker is a likely contender for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.
Obama was asked in an NPR News interview about Walker’s recent comments that he would reject any Iran deal that Obama reaches on his first day as president.
Obama said that if the president’s ability to strike agreements starts being questioned, it will be a problem for allies and embolden U.S. enemies.
He said he’s confident anyone knowledgeable enough to be elected president won’t take that approach and that perhaps Walker will feel the same way after he has has “taken some time to bone up on foreign policy.”
