Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says he’s grateful for Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer, writes CNN.
The former Arkansas governor, Mike Huckabee, praised the decision of the high-ranking Democrat on Saturday to not support the Iran deal.
“Sen. Schumer’s opposition to the agreement sends a signal to every pro-Israel Democrat in Washington that they don’t have to ‘walk the plank’ for President Obama — they can stand for peace and reject this bad deal. And I pray that they will,” Huckabee wrote.
Of course, the agreement is a peace agreement that gives unprecedented access to Iran’s nuclear facilities for inspection.
New York Senator Schumer has stated he is against the agreement between Iran and six other nations. The Huffington Post writes that Schumer is the soon-to-be leader of his party in the Senate.
