Negotiating alone

Probably the key sentence in Democratic US Senator Charles Schumer's indication that he will vote against the Iran nuclear deal --

Better to keep U.S. sanctions in place, strengthen them, enforce secondary sanctions on other nations, and pursue the hard-trodden path of diplomacy once more, difficult as it may be.

So his alternative involves the US pursuing "diplomacy" with partners that it would be sanctioning for their own sovereign dealings with a sovereign Iran.
