Netanyahu Ready to Team Up With Trump to Dismantle Iran Deal
His warnings fell on deaf (or just plain reluctant) ears.
With Trump in the White House, however, Netanyahu believes he has found someone to listen. In an interview with "60 Minutes'" Leslie Stahl on Sunday, the Israeli leader said that he appreciates how "warmly" Trump feels about Israel. Upon forming a friendship with the president, Netanyahu predicted that Trump can help him use some options to disrupt the dangerous nuclear deal.
Netanyahu said there are "various ways of undoing" the 2015 deal, in which Iran agreed to limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions on its oil industry and finances.
"I have about five things in my mind," Netanyahu said, declining to go into further detail.Trump has pledged to, at the very least, renegotiate the nuclear deal within his first days in office.
As for Iran, they have vowed not to let either of them destroy the agreement.
