Candidate criticizes Iran deal as being similar to Holocaust

Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is sticking with his controversial criticism of the Iran nuclear deal as “marching the Israelis to the door of the oven,” a reference to the Holocaust. The former Arkansas governor made the tweet Sunday, a day after first making the comparison when denouncing President Barack Obama for his role in the agreement reached by the United States and other world powers. Responding, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Huckabee’s statement was “grossly irresponsible” and called on him to apologize. But a Huckabee spokeswoman said Sunday his comments reflect a longstanding position that “the Iran deal is a bad deal, bad for America and bad for Israel.” Huckabee’s tweet called on Congress to reject the nuclear deal.
