Israeli Ambassador: The Days of 'Israel-Bashing' at the UN Are Over


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday on "Fox & Friends" that he trusts President Donald Trump to "do the right thing" when it comes to the Iran nuclear deal, from which Trump has repeatedly expressed a desire to withdraw.

Netanyahu revealed "dramatic" intelligence in a presentation Monday that accused Iran of "brazenly lying" about its nuclear weapons development.

He said the information -- which was obtained within the past ten days -- shows Iran also moved materials to a secret location and proves the country is not complying with the nuclear deal it signed in 2015.

"I trust [Trump's] judgment. He'll do the right thing for America, the right thing for Israel and the right thing for the security and peace of the entire world," Netanyahu said. 

The prime minister slammed Iran, calling it a "tyrannical, anti-American regime" that  "should not have nuclear weapons."

He said that even if Iran is complying with the nuclear deal, it could still have "the wherewithal to produce 100 nuclear bombs" in a few years. 

"It's either fully fixed or fully nixed," he said.

A May 12 deadline is looming for President Trump to either waive sanctions against Iran or exit the deal.
