During an appearance on The Mark Levin Show, Florida Governor and GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis declared that the Biden administration is seeking to go back to Barack Obama's policy on Iran and is turning its back on Israel in order to do so.

"They don’t like Bibi, quite frankly, because he’s a conservative," DeSantis said. "They’re wading into internal Israeli matters, like the judicial reform, totally inappropriate for us to be sticking our beak into that. This is a first rate, very smart people in that country. They can figure that out."

He added, "At the end of the day, Biden wants to resurrect the Obama Iran policy. He wants to empower Iran. And they think that that’s good policy. And it’s not."

DeSantis argued against giving Iran anything, saying that the money it already got from Obama was used to fund terrorism against other Middle Eastern countries.

"They would absolutely, if they thought they could get away with it, launch a nuclear attack on Israel, even knowing they could face a reprisal because they would think that that’s worth it. So it’s a very dangerous regime. And we should be doing all we can to deny them the ability to have a nuclear weapon," he said.

Reports say that the U.S. and Iran have already brokered a "mini-deal" and that the U.S. is worried that Israel will get in the way.
