During an interview for Fox News, Senator Marco Rubio stated he was “deeply concerned” about Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel’s  previous statement in regards to sanctions on Iran, negotiating with North Korean, and the statements he has made about Israel.

“I’ve stated long ago that I have been deeply concerned about his previous comments, with regards to sanctions on Iran, with regards to direct negotiations with North Korea, obviously statements he’s made about Israel, and these are not the kind of statements and positions that I want our Secretary of Defense have. These are big, big problems. For those reasons I just don’t believe I will be able to support his nomination.”
