Huckabee To Visit Israel To Talk Iran Nuke Deal

Sunday on CNN State of the Union former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and GOP Presidential candidate said that he would headed be to Israel to talk about the Iranian Nuke Deal. He said, “I think it is one of the most dangerous situations that we face, not just for the Middle East but for the rest of the world in a long time.”
Huckabee said he has traveled to Israel dozens of times and also will use to the trip to raise some money for this campaign. Congress is set to vote in September on the nuclear agreement when it returns from the summer recess after Labor Day.
“This is essentially arming and equipping a terrorist state,” Huckabee said. “The Iranian government is not to be trusted and we’re being pushed to get into a deal that gives us nothing but gives the Iranians the capacity to ultimately end up with a nuclear weapon.”
Back in July Huckabee got in trouble for comments in which he accused President Barack Obama of marching Israelis “to the door of the oven” in a nuclear deal with Iran. He drew criticism from Washington state to Israel for his comments.
Ron Dermer, Israel’s ambassador to Washington, said in an interview with USA Today’s Capital Download program that while Israel had a “very serious disagreement” with the Obama administration over the Iranian issue, Huckabee’s remarks were inappropriate.

It still is unclear what Israeli leaders who Huckabee will meet on this trip to Israel and when that trip will take place.
