Trump: If I’m Not Elected, Israel Will Be Destroyed by Iran Deal
JNS.org – Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump said on Monday that if he’s not elected, Israel will be destroyed because of the Iranian nuclear deal, the Columbus Dispatch reported.
Trump, who met with labor leaders in Cleveland, said Obama was bad at making deals, pointing to the nuclear agreement with Iran, which, he said, “is going to destroy Israel — unless I get elected. Then Israel will be just fine.”
It is unclear what Trump will do regarding the Iran nuclear deal if he becomes president. In March, he told AIPAC policy conference that it was his “number one priority” to “dismantle the disastrous deal with Iran.” At other times, Trump and his advisers have said he will not revoke the deal, but will work to improve it.
In a speech in North Carolina on Tuesday, Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine said, “We have no idea how Donald Trump would handle Iran – and frankly, neither does he.”
