Trump believes he must be elected to stop Iran destroying Israel

Donald Trump has suggested that, if he is not elected as President of the United States, the Iran nuclear deal will lead to the destruction of Israel.

He made the claim on Monday to Cleveland-area labor leaders on Monday, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

Trump suggested the deal has made Iran a world power, adding that Iranian is "highly threatening to the state of Israel, they're so bad for Israel."

Trump's rival in the US presidential race, Hillary Clinton, helped construct the deal during her time as secretary of state in Barack Obama’s first term of office.

The Republican presidential candidate has not said he would remove the deal, however he has called it a bad deal, saying he would first consult his advisors.
