WASHINGTON – Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump warns Americans that “Israel will not survive” if the incompetence of the political class continues to dictate our foreign policy.
Trump appeared Wednesday at the rally to stop the Iran nuclear deal in front of the U.S. Capitol. Preceded by Sen. Ted Cruz, who called Trump his “friend,” and entering to raucous applause against the backdrop of REM’s classic hit “It’s The End of the World As We Know It,” Trump pulled no punches.
“Never, ever ever in my life have I seen any transaction so incompetently negotiated as our deal with Iran,” Trump said. “And I mean never.”
Trump discussed the $150 billion signing bonus the Iranians get as part of the deal, and then turned his attention to the four hostages being held in the Islamic country, including Christian pastor Saeed Abedini.
“If I win the presidency I guarantee you that those four prisoners are back in our country before I ever take office,” Trump said. “They will be back before I ever take office. They know it and if they don’t know it, I’m telling them right now.”
Trump addressed Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s Wednesday tweet declaring that Israel will not survive the next 25 years.
“Our president is calling the person who is really the boss in Iran ‘Supreme Leader,'” Trump said. “It just came out a little while ago, he said Israel will not exist in 25 years…He also said very very strongly that this is the end of our dealings with the United States…So, they rip us off, they take our money, they make us look like fools, and now theyre back to being who they are. They don’t want Israel to survive…with incompetent leadership like we have right now, Israel will NOT survive.”
“We are led by very very stupid people. Very very stupid people. We cannot let it continue.”
“We lose everywhere,” Trump added. “We lose militarily. We can’t beat ISIS. Give me a break…We will have so much winning if I get elected you might get bored with winning.”
“We’re going to have such a strong military that nobody is going to mess with us. We’re not going to have to use it,” Trump concluded.
“We’re going to make America great again.”
