ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declared her support on Saturday (July 25) for the nuclear deal the Obama administration has struck with Iran. During a campaign stop in Iowa, Clinton said she "didn't trust" Iran, but said the agreement will "put a lid on" Iran's nuclear program. "I support the president's agreement with Iran, I helped negotiate the original sanctions that got us on that pathway," she told a crowd of supporters. "And the key to it will be enforcement. I don't trust the Iranians, nobody should trust the Iranians. That's not, you know we're not expecting some kind of transformation on their part. This is a hard-headed agreement to put a lid on their nuclear weapons program. And then we still have to pay attention to their export of terrorism, their support of terrorists around the region and beyond their destabilizing of government, their threat to israel, their threat to the west, et cetera and we do have to pay attention to that and we will when I am president. But it'll be a lot better paying attention to that if we've got a lid on the nuclear weapons program and that's why this agreement is so critical." Clinton is in Iowa for her third time this month, with seven events scheduled over the next three days. She's one of five presidential hopefuls stumping through the state this weekend. Along with Clinton and Democratic candidate Martin O'Malley, there are Republican presidential hopefuls Carly Fiorina, Donald Trump and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
