Washington – Two Presidential candidates stand up for Israel yesterday at the Capitol in speaking out against the Iran deal.  Senator Ted Cruz and Donald Trump spoke out against the Iran deal.

Cruz called the deal “catastrophic” outlining the $100 billion tax payer dollars that will be given to Iran by the US through the deal.  Speaking for the American prisoners in Iran who have been abandoned and left out of the negotiations Cruz called “a disgrace”.

“If you are directly responsible for sending billions of dollars to jihadists who use those billions to murder Americans, you cannot wash your hands of that blood,” Cruz said.

As Congress gathers information about the side deals of the Iran deal a vote could be expected as early as September 11th.
