Iran Nuclear Crisis: Cruz and Trump to Team Up on Iran Deal

Trump: "[The Iranians] are going to be such a wealthy, such a powerful nation. They are going to have nuclear weapons. They are going to take over parts of the world that you wouldn't believe. And I think it's going to lead to nuclear holocaust. Israel is in big trouble. Obama has really let Israel down."

Republican presidential candidates Senator Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are teaming up in opposing the Iran nuclear deal. The two are set to appear at an event organized by the Tea Party Patriots, the Center for Security Politics, and the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA).

Mort Klein, the ZOA president, said, "I think it's of great value to have a person who will likely command coverage of this rally, of this issue, like Donald Trump would be able to. I think it's a good thing. I don't care if he sucks the air out of the room. Maybe [Trump] will be covered more than anyone else at the rally. Fine. The issue's all that matters to me, and getting it covered, and trying to stop this disaster for our country."

Cruz has made his opposition to the Iran agreement a key part of his campaign platform, vowing to "rip to shreds" the deal on the first day of a Cruz presidency. Trump has also been vocal of his opposition to the deal, warning several weeks ago that it would lead to a doomsday scenario.
