In Final Debate, Trump Calls Iran Nuclear Deal ‘Stupidest of All Time’
JNS.org – Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump blasted the nuclear agreement with Iran, signed by the Obama administration last year, during his third and final debate with Democratic contender Hillary Clinton on Wednesday night at the University of Las Vegas.
Calling it the “stupidest deal of all time,” Trump said, “Iran should write us a letter of thank you,” for “absolutely” giving it nuclear weapons.
He went on: “Iran should write us yet another letter saying thank you very much. Because Iran, as I said many years ago, Iran is taking over Iraq. Something they’ve wanted to do forever. But we’ve made it so easy for them.”
For her part, Clinton attacked Trump for refusing to condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin, both for his country’s suspected part in hacking the emails of her campaign staff and those of the Democratic National Committee — in an alleged attempt to influence the election — and for his role as a backer of President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian civil war.
“Syria will remain a hotbed of terrorism as long as the Civil War, aided and abetted by the Iranians and the Russians, continues,” she said. Trump responded, “If Russia and the United States got along well and went after ISIS that would be good. [Putin] has no respect for [Clinton].”
