Jeb: Huckabee’s ‘Unfortunate’ Iran Comments ‘Just Wrong’

Monday while campaigning, 2016 Republican presidential candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush reacted to one of his opponents, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee saying the Iran nuclear deal was Obama leading Israelis to the “door of the oven.

“I think we need to tone down the rhetoric for sure,” Bush declared. “Look, I have been to Israel—not as many times as Mike Huckabee, who I respect—but the use of that kind of language is just wrong. It is just not how we are going to win elections and not how we are going to solve problems. So, an unfortunate remark. I’m not sure why he felt compelled to say it. Having said that, this is a bad deal. I can see why people are angry about it.”
