Sen. Ron Johnson Not Sure He Trusts Obama Or Ayatollah Khamenei On Iran Deal (Video)

The U.S., Iran and five other nations have until June 30 to reach a final deal regarding Iran's nuclear capabilities.

The Hill reported last month that Iran wanted all international economic sanctions lifted when the deal is complete, but the U.S. and other countries want a gradual phasing out of those sanctions to make sure that Iran is keeping the deal.

Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin recently said that he's not sure who he can trust more on the Iran deal, the President of the United States or Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, reports Buzzfeed (video below).

During a town hall in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, Johnson complained about the nuclear deal's framework, which is not the final deal. Then he claimed President Obama lied about Obamacare, and added:

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

I don’t know, I hate to admit it, but in terms of this framework, do I trust President Obama, or do I trust the Ayatollah? In terms of what the framework actually says? I’m not so sure I’m trusting President Obama on this.

Johnson didn't explain what exactly President Obama would have to gain by allowing Iran to have nuclear weapons.
