WASHINGTON (JTA) – Inside the congressional offices, there were soft-spoken recriminations, tears, even the occasional consoling hug. Outside, under a blazing sun, there were whoops, full-throated cries against appeasement and condemnation of President Barack Obama’s “pink kaleidoscope.”
Trump, the front-runner in Republican presidential polls, sounded some similar notes.
“They rip us off, they take our money, they make us look like fools, they don’t want Israel to survive,” he said of the government in Tehran. Of the government in Washington, Trump said, “We are led by very, very stupid people. Very, very stupid people.”
Trump’s remarks, however, focused less on the deal and more on himself and his cherished achievement of not losing: “We may have so much winning if I get elected that you may get bored with winning,” he said.
