Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Saturday blasted President Obama for agreeing to a nuclear deal with Iran, invoking the Holocaust to describe how he believes the agreement may impact Israel.
“This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. 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,” he said in an interview with Breitbart News on Saturday.
“This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped,” Huckabee continued.
Huckabee’s campaign later promoted part of Huckabee’s interview with Breitbart.

After the Obama administration submitted the final Iran nuclear deal to Congress, Republicans last week lashed out against President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry for agreeing to the deal.
