IRAN: “I’d love to get Iran back on track. Their GDP went down 27 percent. They’re — they’ve gone from a rich country to a poor country in a period of three years. And I’d love to get them back on track. They just can’t have nuclear weapons. That’s all. You know? Nuclear weapons, and it’s always ‘death to Israel.’ That’s all they shout is ‘death to Israel.’

So they can’t have nuclear weapons, but they can have what they want. I mean, they should be a great nation. They’re great people. I know so many Iranians. I have a lot of Iranian friends. It should be a great nation. And we want it to be a great nation, but we can’t have nuclear weapons.”
