Fox News accidentally stumps a GOP senator by asking if Trump's Iran policy has done any good
Fox News

Tensions are rising between the United States and Iran, placing a spotlight back on President Donald Trump's key decision about his administration's policy toward the rogue regime: pulling out of the nuclear deal crafted under President Barack Obama.

Countless observers and commentators, including many within Trump's administration, urged him to stay in the deal that severely restricted Iran's ability to get a nuclear weapon. But Trump was committed to leaving it, even without any factual justification, and now the chance of a military conflict with the regime is rising — driven largely, it appears, by National Security Adviser John Bolton.

It was in that in that context that Harri Faulkner, a Fox News host, asked Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott on Thursday: "What has changed since we pulled out of that deal that's a positive for us?"

Clearly caught off guard — and completely stumped — Scott exhaled sharply as he realized there was nothing positive to tout about Trump's decision.

"There's nothing that's positive that's happening," he admitted.
