Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) on Tuesday said that she thought Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech was “powerful” but lacked alternatives to the current nuclear deal that the U.S. is negotiating with Iran.

“What he didn’t say was what would happen if there was no deal,” she said on CNN after Netanyahu’s speech to Congress. “And he didn’t make a suggestion as to what Israel would find agreeable. He simply said, there’s nothing that we agree with here. And then he made a number of pronouncements of terrible things that could happen.”

Feinstein said that denouncing the Iran deal was “really premature” on Netanyahu’s part because the deal has not yet been finalized.
