Rep. Tim Ryan: Iran Deal Wasn’t a Great Deal, But It Was a Solid Deal

‘The United States and basically President Obama placed a bet’


RYAN: "It wasn’t a great deal, but I think it was a solid deal and a deal that had to be done. The United States and basically President Obama placed a bet. There’s a lot of young people in Iran, there's a generation of people that are listening to Western music, they have Western technology, and we’re making a bet that if we can get these younger people to be slightly more understanding, slightly more moderate, and the Iranian election proved that, that there are a lot of moderates in Iran. And I think we have to try to engage them the best we can, even though the deal’s not perfect."
