Obama: ‘99% of World’ Likes Iran Deal

President Obama defended his beleaguered nuclear deal with Iran at a press conference Monday, saying he hasn’t “heard a factual argument on the other side that holds up to scrutiny.” “There’s a reason why 99% of the world thinks it's a good deal,” Obama said. “Because it is a good deal.” The deal has come under heavy criticism from some who claim it bowed too much to Iran’s demands.
