Donald Trump: Obama 'Hates Israel'

Donald Trump speaking at New Hampshire Town Hall in August 2015

President Barack Obama "hates Israel," Donald Trump said during a rally Oct. 29.

The 2016 Republican presidential candidate said those words in front of a 4,000 person crowd in Nevada, ABC reports.

When a person in the crowd shouted “Israel” to get Trump’s attention, he responded, “I heard the beautiful name of Israel."

“Israel is safe with this one,” the real estate tycoon added, pointing to himself.

He then took the opportunity to express his displeasure with the president, calling the Iran nuclear deal reached over the summer with five allied nations and Tehran regarding Iran's nuclear program "so bad for Israel, so dangerous."

"They [Israel] have a president who they actually think Obama hates Israel," Trump remarked. "I think he does." Israel is "in such a massive amount of trouble," Trump added, "because of the agreement.”

The former reality TV star may dislike the nuclear agreement, but unlike some of his Republican presidential rivals, he would not "rip up the deal," he told NBC's "Meet the Press" in August, according to the Huffington Post.

"You know, I've taken over some bad contracts," he explained on the program. "I buy contracts where people screwed up and they have bad contracts. "But I'm really good at looking at a contract and finding things within a contract that, even if they're bad, I would police that contract so tough that they don't have a chance. As bad as the contract is, I will be so tough on that contract."

The GOP front runner promised to be an expert negotiator on foreign affairs at the Oct. 29 rally.

"It’s not about being a celebrity," Trump said, according to the Washington Post. "It’s about having a view that’s captivating the people in this country, because they’re tired of being taken advantage of, they’re tired of being stupid, they’re tired of having their leaders be out-negotiated on every single deal. They’re tired of it. They’re tired of having China rip us off on every trade deal — and Japan and Mexico and everybody else."
