Hillary Clinton said Friday she wants a deal over Iran’s nuclear arms research that halts its work on potential weapons.
The 2016 presidential candidate called for an end to Iran’s atomic bomb efforts during a campaign rally, according to Reuters.
“I so hope that we are able to get a deal in the next week that puts a lid on Iran’s nuclear weapons program,” Clinton told listeners at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H.
{mosads}The Obama administration hopes Iran will slow or stop its nuclear weapons research in exchange for economic sanctions relief.
The U.S. and its allies are currently racing towards a final pact with Iran by the July 7 deadline.
Clinton also argued Friday that electing a Republican president next year would result in the end for ObamaCare.
“I’m so thrilled that we’re at a point where all the calls about ‘Repeal! Repeal! Repeal!’ mean nothing — unless they elect a Republican president,” she said, according to The Washington Post.
“If this country elects a Republican president, they will repeal the Affordable Care Act,” she added. “That’s as certain as I can say it.”
Her remarks follow last weekend’s Supreme Court ruling upholding ObamaCare subsidies.
Clinton also said a 2016 GOP election victory would undo President Obama’s work rejuvenating the economy.
“There’s just a pattern here where the other side keeps using the same old tired, failed policies,” she said.
“They don’t work, and then Democratic presidents have to come in and fix what was broken,” Clinton said.
“So let’s break that and have a Democratic president to continue the policies that actually work for the vast majority of Americans,” she added.
Clinton is the heavy favorite for her party’s presidential nomination next election cycle.
She officially announced her 2016 campaign in an online video on April 12.
