US Senator Rubio: Iran deal could 'go away' with Obama

WASHINGTON - US Republican presidential candidate Senator Marco Rubio on Thursday warned that President Barack Obama's successor could scrap the Iran nuclear deal even if it is approved by Congress.
Rubio was among the unsparing critics of the July 14 agreement at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing where Secretary of State John Kerry, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew defended it.
The deal, which followed two years of negotiations, is aimed at curbing Iran's ability to obtain a nuclear weapon in exchange for relaxing crippling economic sanctions on Tehran.
