President Donald Trump said during a Monday press conference that the Israeli prime minister's intelligence on Iran's nuclear program proves it "right" to push back against and potentially pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.
"I want to ask you about Iran, the Israeli prime minister just gave a speech very critical of the nuclear program," The Hill reporter Jordan Fabian said. "Is it your decision to pull out of that deal? And if you do pull out of that deal, do you worry that sends the wrong message to North Korea to enter nuclear talks with Kim Jong Un?"
Trump said if he were to pull out of the deal, it would send the "right message" to North Korea, explaining the U.S. will not enter into a bad deal with a party who lies about its nuclear program.
"No, I think it sends the right message [to North Korea]," Trump said of the potential decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. "In seven years, that deal will have expired and Iran is free to go ahead and create nuclear weapons. That is not acceptable. Seven years is tomorrow. That's not acceptable. So, no. If anything, it's proven right [with] what Israel has done today with the news conference."
