Klobuchar and different candidates criticized Trump for withdrawing the US from the Obama-era nuclear settlement between Iran and other world powers, saying that the transfer has led to escalating tensions between Washington and Tehran.
Klobuchar stated she would renegotiate the 2015 deal if she had been elected president, describing the nuclear deal, formally generally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as an excellent but “imperfect” settlement.
Klobuchar asserted that Trump “has made us less safe than we have been when he became president,” referencing recent comments by Iranian officials that Tehran will quickly surpass the caps on uranium put in place under the agreement.
Klobuchar additionally mentioned she would go to Congress for an authorization for use of military force if there were any risk of an armed battle with Iran.
Trump advised Hill.TV in an exclusive interview earlier this week that he doesn’t want congressional approval to strike Iran.
Late last week, Trump ordered a strike towards Iran but later reversed his. The strike would have been in response to the downing of an unmanned U.S. aerial vehicle over the Strait of Hormuz.
