Huckabee: ‘Laughable’ for Obama to Say He’s Done More for the Security of Israel

‘For him to say that his administration has done more for the security of Israel, it’s laughable on its face’

BREAM: “[You, along with all of your domestic campaigning,] were internationally this week meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He’s a long-time friend of yours. You both have been very vocal against the upcoming Iran nuke deal that Congress is going to vote on. In a letter this week, President Obama reached out, detailing his reassurances for Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler, apparently enough to convince that congressman that -- to say he’s going to vote yes on the Iran nuke deal. Here’s a little bit of what the president wrote to win over Representative Nadler. He said, ‘should Iran seek to dash toward a nuclear weapon, all of the options available to the United States, including the military option, will remain available through the life of the deal and beyond.’ He also said, ‘no administration has done more for Israel’s security than mine. I am prepared to further strengthen the relationship.’ Why is that not good enough for you?”

HUCKABEE: “Well, it’s not true. First of all, for him to say that his administration has done more for the security of Israel, it’s laughable on its face. And if you walk up and down the streets of Jerusalem or Tel Aviv or Haifa, or Herzliya, you’re never going to hear someone say, ‘boy, President Obama sure does care about Israel.’ I mean the -- the opposite is true. And, by the way, Israelis oppose this deal by a margin of 7-1, 69 to 10 percent. In America, it’s 57 to 28 percent against it.”
