Mike Huckabee turned up the anti-Obama rhetoric in the GOP presidential race by invoking an image of the Holocaust concentration camps where millions of jews were burned in furnaces.
Obama's nuclear deal with Iran "is the most idiotic thing" and the U.S. president "will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven," Huckabee said in a radio interview with Breitbart's editor-in-chief Alexander Marlow.
"This president's foreign policy is the most feckless in American history," the Republican presidential hopeful said. "It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It's got to be stopped."
The Democratic Party responded with a statement from Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the national committee chair: "This rhetoric, while commonplace in today's Republican presidential primary, has no place in American politics. Cavalier analogies to the Holocaust are unacceptable. Mike Huckabee must apologize to the Jewish community and to the American people for this grossly irresponsible statement."
