Trump Makes Stunning Claim About A Horrific Part Of Obama’s Iran Deal

by Jack Davis, Western Journalism President Obama’s woefully inadequate nuclear deal with Iran could put the United States in the position of defending Iran against longtime American ally Israel, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said this week. “A baby could negotiate a better deal than that,” he said scornfully in an interview Tuesday with CNN. ” We don’t get our prisoners back. They have 24-day inspections.” “I like the idea of a deal but they should have doubled up the sanctions for another couple of months and they would have come to the table and they would have been begging to make a good deal,” maintained Trump, who has consistently voiced opposition to the agreement. Trump’s newest concern revolved around the deal’s implications that the Western countries signing the agreement are obliged to protect Iran. “There is something in the Iran deal that people I don’t think really understand or know about,” Trump said. “And nobody is ever to explain it, that if somebody attacks Iran, we have to come to their defense.” “I like the idea of a deal but they should have doubled up the sanctions for another couple of months and they would have come to the table and they would have been begging to make a good deal,” maintained Trump, who has consistently voiced opposition to the agreement.

They don’t have exclusion for us here. So, if Israel attacks Iran according to that deal, I believe, the way it reads unless they have a codicil or they have something to it, that we have to fight with Iran against Israel.” Trump elaborated on his position Thursday on “The John Fredericks Show,” a Virginia-based radio show. “If Israel attacks Iran I think we have to be on — of course, this wouldn’t happen, it wouldn’t happen with me, I don’t know, with Obama you never know — but we’re supposed to be on Iran’s side if that happens, OK?” Trump said Thursday. The potential of that scenario should make anyone pause, Trump insisted. “If that’s the case I think it’s unsignable,” he said. “How could you possibly sign such a thing?” The agreement is designed to put restrictions on Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for lifting international sanctions. Congressional Republicans oppose the deal and have planned to pass a resolution of disapproval later this month when Congress returns to session. Obama, however, has enough votes in the Senate to sustain a veto of any attempt to block the deal.
