Chad’s Morning Brief: Obama Admits Iran May Fund Terror Organizations With Unfrozen Cash and Why Did Donald Trump Call Bill Clinton
Here are some of the issues that will be discussed on today’s edition of The Chad Hasty Show.
Iran Deal May Help Fund Terrorism
Senator and Presidential candidate Ted Cruz took some heat from President Obama, Mitt Romney and others when Cruz said that President Obama would be a leading financier of terrorism if the Iran deal went through. A point he stood by in my interview with him last week.
On Wednesday, President Obama admitted that some of the cash that will be unfrozen due to the deal may be used to fund terror according to Yahoo News.
President Barack Obama acknowledged Wednesday that Iran might use cash coming its way under sanctions relief to fund "terrorist organizations" but argued this is preferable to allowing it to develop nuclear arms.
"The truth is, that Iran has always found a way to fund these efforts," Obama said, in a speech to defend the Iran nuclear deal.
"And whatever benefit Iran may claim from sanctions relief pales in comparison to the danger it could pose with a nuclear weapon."
In other words, hey sorry to all of you who are killed or injured in a terrorist attack that is linked back to Iran, but I think we can trust these same people who finance terror not to break our deal. Seriously?
Trump Spoke to Bill Clinton Before Announcing Campaign
According to the Washington Post Donald Trump spoke to former President Bill Clinton about a possible campaign for the Republican nomination.
Former president Bill Clinton had a private telephone conversation in late spring with Donald Trump at the same time that the billionaire investor and reality-television star was nearing a decision to run for the White House, according to associates of both men.
Four Trump allies and one Clinton associate familiar with the exchange said that Clinton encouraged Trump’s efforts to play a larger role in the Republican Party and offered his own views of the political landscape.
Clinton’s personal office in New York confirmed that the call occurred in late May, but an aide to Clinton said the 2016 race was never specifically discussed and that it was only a casual chat.
The talk with Clinton — the spouse of the Democratic presidential front-runner and one of his party’s preeminent political strategists — came just weeks before Trump jumped into the GOP race and surged to the front of the crowded Republican field.
The revelation of the call comes as many Republicans have begun criticizing Trump for his ties to Democrats, including past financial donations to the Clintons and their charitable foundation.
Trump's people say Clinton called while Clinton's people say Trump called first. Either way, this is odd. I can't think of any other Republican that would call his rival's Democratic spouse prior to announcing a run. I also think it's odd that Clinton would encourage Trump. Very odd, you know unless Trump is working with the Clinton's to torpedo the GOP's chances... as I've said could be possible.
