(TheConservativeNews.org) – One of the most potentially serious issues with Joe Biden’s presidency thus far is his uncertain stance on Iran. Donald Trump took a hard line with the Middle Eastern nation, withdrawing from the Obama-era nuclear deal in 2018. The consequent sanctions Iran had to bear were seen as effective in limiting its nuclear development capacity; however, Joe Biden is still considering re-entering the deal.
On Tuesday, March 16, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on the Spicer & Co. show on Newsmax TV. Discussing Iranian interference in our most recent presidential election, Cruz said “it’s not surprising” that Iran’s leaders would have wanted Biden to win. This, he claimed, is because the Obama administration (in which Biden served as vice president) had been overly generous in the nuclear deal it struck with Iran, especially compared to Donald Trump’s hard-line approach.
Cruz’s comments referred to the recent findings by the intelligence community that Russia and Iran both made attempts to influence the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. According to the report, Iran “carried out a multi-pronged covert influence campaign” that was designed to work against Trump’s re-election bid.
It’s not clear just how effective Iran’s attempts at election interference were. Regardless, the regime got the result it was looking for.
