Ted Cruz and Donald Trump Lead Rally to Stop the Iran Deal in D.C.

In Washington, D.C. on Wednesday hundreds of people gathered to protest against the Iran Nuclear Deal. Over several hours and in sweltering heat, the crowds stood alternately, cheering and jeering — cheering for the speakers and jeering President Obama and the Democrats (and RINOs) who support the Iran Nuclear Deal. The keynote speeches of the day came from GOP Presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Donald Trump.

Ted Cruz:

Right now today 42 Senate Democrats have come out in support of this deal. It is my hope and prayer that every one of those Senate Democrats reconsiders, that they go home and they fall to their knees and they praise tonight. I agree with former Democrats Senator Joe Lieberman that this vote is quite likely the most important vote that any member of Congress, any member of the Senate were cast in their entire career.

There was a time when there was a tradition of Scoop Jackson Democrats, of JFK Democrats, of Joe Lieberman Democrats, of Democrats who were willing to defend national security. Sadly, that is becoming rarer and rarer in today’s Congress. So, to every Democratic Senator, they are facing a choice, do you value the safety and security of the United Sates of America. Do you value standing with our friend and ally, the nation of Israel? Do you value the lives of millions of Americans or do you value more party loyalty to the Obama White House?

To every Democratic Senator who has said he or she will support the deal I ask you to consider how will you look in the eyes of the mothers and fathers of our soldiers, the hundreds of American soldiers who were murdered in Iraq with Iranian IEDs that came from General Soleimani? This deal lifts sanctions on General Soleimani.

Tell me if you’re a Democratic Senator how you look a mom in the eyes and say, ‘I voted to lift sanctions on the man who murdered your son when he was defending this nation.’ But beyond that, when we talk about terrorism, it is worth remembering that if this deal goes through we know to an absolute certainty people will die. Americans will die, Israelis will die. Europeans will die.

Donald Trump:

“If I win the presidency, I guarantee you that those four prisoners are back in our country before I ever take office. I guarantee that. They will be back before I ever take office because they know that’s what has to happen, OK? They know it. And if they don’t know it, I’m telling them right now.”

Israel will not survive,” Trump said with America’s current “incompetent leadership.”

Conservative radio host Mark Levin also riled up the crowd with his powerful words.

Mark Levin:

“A conga-line of Democrats, one after another, supports this surrender. It is clear the Democrats no longer represent the party of Truman and Kennedy.

It is now the Democrat party of Bill Ayers, Saul Alinsky, and Barack Obama. The Democrat Party will have blood on its hands as a result of this deal for the rest of time. This deal sows the seeds of war.

And the Republicans. You see some of that scaffolding over there? They should take some of it and use it on their damn spines.

Gone is the party of Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan. Instead we get the party of McConnell and Corker and Boehner. Tell the Republicans, this is not about getting along with Obama, it is about stopping Obama.”

We must stop the horrible Iran Nuclear Deal. MUST.
