Trump says Israel may be ‘destroyed’ if he is not elected

Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump said Tuesday that if he is not elected president in November, Israel is at risk of being destroyed, apparently by Iran.

The Columbus Dispatch reported that in a session stretching more than a half-hour with local labor leaders at an American Legion post in Brook Park, Ohio, Trump criticized Obama for being a bad negotiator, and the result of the nuclear accord with Iran which he negotiated “is going to destroy Israel — unless I get elected. Then Israel will be just fine.”

Trump has repeatedly stated that if elected president, he would modify, renegotiate or completely rescind the nuclear deal.

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton has said she supports the agreement to rein in Iran’s nuclear program.

The Iranians have dismissed Trump’s calls to reengage in negotiations over the deal signed with world powers last July.
