Rubio: Obama Shows More Respect for Iran Than Israel
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) tonight charged President Barack Obama with having more respect for Iran than America’s ally, Israel.
Rubio said that while he has great admiration for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, America’s commitment is to the state of Israel.
“We have had historically in this country a very strong bipartisan commitment to Israel’s security and its future,” Rubio said. “This president has threatened that through his personal animus towards the prime minister, and I think that’s deeply unfortunate and troubling, and I have no idea why he is more willing to speak to the Iranians and show more respect for Iran than he is willing to show respect for our strong ally in Israel.”
Sean Hannity also asked Rubio about Obama’s remark today that “it would be transformative if everybody voted.” Hannity asked: Is Obama going to try to mandate voting in America?
Rubio said he wouldn’t be surprised if Obama tried to move forward on such an agenda.
“I wish more people would participate in politics, too, but that is their choice, that is the choice of living in a free society,” Rubio said.
Rubio also sounded off on Loretta Lynch’s attorney general nomination. He said Obama took a “blatantly unconstitutional step by nullifying the immigration laws in this country,” and that Lynch is arguing that what Obama has done is constitutional.
“That alone should disqualify her from being the next attorney general,” Rubio said.
