IRAN/TERRORISM: “I won’t say anything, because I don’t like saying it, but Iran doesn’t have so much money to give to the world anymore — to the terrorists, to give to al Qaeda and various other groups of people that they were funding. They have to keep their own regime together, and it’s not easy for them.
And if and when I win the election, within the first month, Iran will come to us and they are going to be asking for a deal so quickly because they are doing very poorly…
I imposed the toughest-ever sanctions on Iran, and this has caused great difficulty for them giving money to terrorist organizations. And if they do, they’ll have hell to pay.”
