Trump, Cruz Join Forces to Protest Iran Agreement

The day after Congress returns from recess, Donald Trump will visit Capitol Hill to join his friend Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in a rally against the Obama administration's nuclear agreement with Iran. The Texas senator himself reportedly invited Trump. The demonstration, taking place Sept. 9, is expected to draw rabbis and Christian and Zionist groups as well.

In addition to protesting the dangerous holes in the Iran deal, which shockingly allows Iran to inspect itself at nuclear sites, both Trump and Cruz have emphasized the fact that the agreement cruelly forgets the four American hostages still languishing in the Middle Eastern country. Cruz has long demanded the return of Pastor Saeed Abedini, imprisoned in Iran since 2012 for his Christian beliefs. At a press conference in South Carolina Thursday, Trump said Secretary of State John Kerry should never have started negotiations until securing the release of the prisoners. 

Trump and Cruz are in good bipartisan company in their rejection of the nuclear deal. So far, 14 Democrat congressmen and two Democrat senators have joined several Republican legislators in denouncing the deal.

As it happens, the rest of the country isn't too thrilled with it, either.

I expect Capitol Hill will be pretty crowded on Sept. 9.
