Mike Huckabee Says the Iran Nuclear Deal Was About Money

On Sunday, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that President Obama's nuclear agreement with Iran presents no benefit for Americans. Huckabee told John Dickerson on CBS's "Face the Nation," “We got nothing out of this deal, John. And my comments, while the president may have called them ridiculous, what’s ridiculous is that we would ever trust the Iranians who for 36 years have vowed that they will wipe Israel off the face of the map and have vowed that they will bring death to America and chanted it even during the negotiations."

Huckabee caused some controversy by comparing the Iran deal with the Holocaust. Yet, he argued on Sunday that his reference to the Nazis’ attempted genocide of the Jews is justified, given Iran’s hatred of Israel. Huckabee went on to say “As a person who has been going to Israel dozens of times over the past 42 years since 1973 and as a person who has stood in Auschwitz on three different occasions and understood the gravity of the situation, when someone is saying they’re going to kill an entire group of people, we better take it seriously."

He also added “I believe it’s a money deal. If you look through, there are dozens of pages of all the companies and entities that are going to have their assets unfrozen.” Huckabee then concluded “It’s a real sad state of affairs when we put money ahead of national security and security for not just the people of Israel but all of the Middle East and all of the world."
