Texas senator and Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz has long opposed President Obama’s Iran Nuclear Deal.
Cruz: I can tell you this Iranian Nuclear Deal is catastrophic.

“Enough of the concessions, capitulations and backroom deals that make up President Obama’s catastrophic nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Cruz said in a statement to TheBlaze.

Cruz: 1) The Obama Administration will become the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism – billions of dollars will flow to jihadists who will use that money to try and murder Americans. 2) This deal leaves four American hostages languishing in Iran. 3) This deal only accelerates Iran’s acquiring a nuclear weapon.
Cruz’s final point is under scrutiny by some, for running counter to what three dozen retired military generals and admirals claim is the “best option to prevent an Iranian nuclear weapon.”
