The White House stated that the 2015 Iran nuclear deal was made under false pretenses Tuesday.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders "The deal was made on a completely false pretense. Iran lied on the front end"

"We think the biggest mistake that was made was under the Obama administration [was] by ever entering the deal in the first place," Huckabee Sanders said.

She noted, following Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech in which he exposed an archive of materials related to the Iranian nuclear program, "Today we know that Iran's capabilities are far more advanced than they have declared in the past."

"We have a strong fear that if the nuclear agreement remains in place, in seven years' time Iran will be at a very advanced point in the nuclear production process and will be able to manufacture weapons and do what we are trying to prevent," concluded Huckabee Sanders.
