Sen. John McCain is denouncing the Iran deal as having “fundamental flaws.”
In an exclusive interview with The Daily Signal, the Arizona Republican said “there are fundamental flaws in this agreement” with Iran, but acknowledged he doesn’t know if there will be the votes in the Senate to override a veto from President Obama.
“I think we are going to make a compelling argument, but there’s a lot of pressures that an administration can put on one of these senators … but I look forward to the debate,” McCain commented.
Asked about ISIS, McCain said, “We’re losing and we’re losing badly.” He added:
They are succeeding and they have a capital and they control territory and they’re now spreading. They’re now spreading into Afghanistan … They’re winners in the view of these radical Islam[ists]—by the way,the president refuses to call it radical Islam. Amazing.—So yes, they’re winning.
Talking about the Department of Defense’s push to allow transgender soldiers to serve in the military, McCain said that we need to know more. “I just think there are a lot of questions to ask … first of all I want to know its effect on readiness.”
