Donald Trump said he believes President Obama "is the worst thing that has ever happened to Israel" during a presidential campaign stop in Norfolk, Va., on Saturday.
During a wide-ranging speech, Trump argued that he would better protect Israel. He criticized Obama's deal with Iran and took issue with the president referring to Iran's head of state as the "Supreme Leader," which is the official title used by Iranians.
"He called him the Supreme Leader: 'Yes, today we talked to the Supreme Leader.' I'm never calling him the Supreme Leader. Believe me," Trump said. "When I meet him, I'll say 'Hey, hi you doing?' But I will never call him — can you imagine this guy — he's calling him the Supreme Leader."
The Donald, who fell to second in the Washington Examiner's most recent GOP presidential power rankings, reiterated his belief that the Obama administration's deal with Iran has doomed Israel.
