The Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Reince Priebus has asked Democratic party’s presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to disavow her support for President Obama’s decision to pay a $400 million ransom to Iran, which according to him is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.
Priebus said Friday that anything less than a full-throated repudiation of this horrendous decision will only further prove she lacks the judgement to be President.
“Now that the State Department has admitted the $400 million the Obama Administration secretly sent to Iran was tied to the release of U.S. prisoners, Hillary Clinton must immediately disavow this dangerous blunder or risk putting more Americans in jeopardy,” Priebus said in his statement.
He said Iran is already trying to capitalize on this egregious mistake by taking more U.S. citizens captive.
Meanwhile, in an ongoing poll on RMN News Service, when people were asked “Who should be the next President of America?”, a whopping 46% voters said they do not want Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in the White House. Only 29% voted for Clinton and 25% for Trump.

According to Priebus, Clinton’s support for Obama’s Iran ransom reflects the same bad judgement that characterized her foreign policy decision-making as secretary of state, which left the world a more unstable and dangerous place.
