In response to FOX News’ Judge Jeannine Pirro’s question concerning Obama’s nuclear concessions to Iran, real estate mogul and former US presidential candidate Donald Trump said last week, “Probably, maybe from the beginning, there has never been a greater enemy to Israel than Barack Obama. It’s incredible.”

Trump then added, “The way he treats them. The way he’s speaking to them. I think, he treats our known enemies much better.”

Upon additional questioning by Judge Pirro, with regard to the United States Ambassador Susan Rice’s walking out of the UN before Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s General Assembly speech, and the Obama administration's reported “chicken***t” remark, Trump went on to explain:

“Look, they don’t like him, and they don’t like Israel. And, that’s what I say. I speak to friends of mine that are Jewish. I say, ‘How are you supporting this man?’ He’s the worst thing that ever has happened to Israel... What’s going to happen is, the way it’s going, Iran will have a nuclear weapon. And it’s very close. And, as soon as that happens, it’s a new ballgame.”

“The United States is so poorly run,” he said. “When you look at relations with other countries, in history it’s never been like this. Not one country do we get along with anymore. And, it’s not like we don’t get along because we are taking advantage of them. We don’t get along, and they’re taking advantage of us.”
