EXCERPT: Mike Huckabee said he believes the Iran nuclear deal would be bad for Israel. Not just bad – Holocaust-level bad.
In an interview with conservative news outlet Breitbart on Saturday, the GOP presidential hopeful and former governor of Arkansas said the deal will “take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.” After facing criticism for the comparison, Mr. Huckabee stood by his remark and posted anti-Israel comments from Iranian officials on Twitter.
“This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history,” Huckabee told Breitbart. “It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal.”
Campaign spokeswoman Alice Stewart, when asked to elaborate on the Holocaust reference, told CNN “the comment speaks for itself.”
