(CNN) – Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, offered skepticism Monday of the interim deal reached over Iran's nuclear program.
"What will this deal accomplish in terms of the end game? The end game is to dismantle the plutonium reactor," he said on CNN's "New Day." "The end game to stop enrichment. This allows 18,000 centrifuges to stay in place and it basically suspends construction of the plutonium reactor. We're so far away what the end game should look like. I'm very worried."
20 things to know about the deal
He called for a new round of sanctions that can only be relieved if Iran dismantles–not suspends construction on–its plutonium reactor.
"Once you get them to the table you let them know what the final deal will look like and say take this or else," he continued. "We're dealing with people who are not only untrustworthy, this is a murderous regime that murders their own people, creates chaos and mayhem throughout the whole world, the largest sponsor of terrorism. And we're treating them out of sync with who they are. That's what bothers me so much. This deal doesn't represent the fact we're dealing with the most thuggish people in the whole world."
