While President Trump and congressional Republicans like Sen. Ted Cruz blamed former President Barack Obama for the recent Iranian terror attacks against the U.S., Florida Rep. Val Demings (D) says that the nation is no “less safe” after Obama returned billions of dollars in frozen Iranian cash.

Rep. Demings told The Floridian that “What President Obama did has nothing to do, moving forward, with keeping us safe.”

“We are under threat right now, said Demings “What President Obama did has nothing to do, moving forward, with keeping us safe. When we pulled out of the Iranian deal, it appears to me we had no plan for any reactions that Iran would have after pulling out of that deal. And so what President Obama did, did not make us safer or less safe in this situation today.”

When the Iran Nuclear deal was struck, the Obama administration handed over $1.7 billion to Iran, with part of the total going to fund terrorist groups Hezbollah and the Quds Force.
