Trump on Iran Deal: Obama Couldn’t Even Get American Prisoners Freed

Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate and billionaire business mogul Donald Trump reacted to the nuclear deal with Iran Announced by President Barack Obama earlier today by saying the president was too “desperate,” and couldn’t even get the Americans unjustly imprisoned by Iran freed.

Trump said, “He dealt from desperation and he shouldn’t have been desperate. First of all, we’re giving them billions of dollars in this deal, which we shouldn’t give them.We should have kept the money. Second of all, we have four prisoners over there. We should have said let the prisoners out. They shouldn’t be over there. One’s in there because he’s a Christian. He’s a pastor. One’s in there, a writer. I mean, they shouldn’t be in prison. So he should have said, we’re not doing anything, let them out. They would have let them out in two minutes if the right messenger delivered the message. They should have been out at the beginning of the negotiation. Who would think we would do a negotiation and have four prisoners.”

He added, “You know the Iranians are going to cheat. They are going to cheat. They are great negotiators and you know they’re going to cheat.”
