Press Release

WASHINGTON− Today, Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, visited Washington, D.C. to deliver an address to a joint session of Congress. After the speech, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann released the following statement.

“Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress this morning was not only inspiring, but it was also judicious. As the President continues to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran, I stand with the Prime Minister in my belief that the United States cannot agree to a deal that will result in Iran developing nuclear weapons. In the words of Prime Minister Netanyahu, “no deal is better than a bad deal. This is a bad deal.” I hope the President will recognize what is at stake for both Israel and the United States and walk away from any agreement that puts us and our allies in danger.”
