Sen. Lee Applauds End of Iran Agreement

May 8, 2018

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Tuesday after President Trump announced the United States would exercise its right to exit the executive agreement the previous administration had entered into with Iran.

“It is unfortunate that the previous administration rushed to produce an executive agreement with Iran that it knew could never withstand the scrutiny of the United States Senate. I hope that the current administration will be able to negotiate a better deal and that when it does it will submit the resulting treaty to the Senate for ratification as required by the Constitution."
