Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida said Wednesday that for President Obama, the historic agreement on Iran’s nuclear program is an exhibit in Mr. Obama’s future presidential library.

“Here’s the broader point that this president fails to make, and I think we need to understand: For him, this whole deal, you know what it is? It is an exhibit in his presidential library,” Mr. Rubio said on Fox News.

“That’s what he wants to be able to do, is say, ‘This is what I’ve achieved. Peace in our time, this big deal with Iran,’ ” said Mr. Rubio, a 2016 GOP presidential candidate.

“Look at the press coverage of this issue: Some of it’s been glowing as some sort of historic deal — it’s ridiculous,” he continued. “A third-rate autocracy has now been given equality with a world power, with the United States of America. They are now a nuclear threshold country on a deal signed with the United States and other global powers. That’s why they’re cheering in the streets [of] Tehran; that’s why they’re celebrating. You don’t see any celebrations in America. You don’t see any celebrations in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv, because they know this is a one-sided deal.”
