The recent criticism of the Iran nuclear deal by US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is part of the usual “outrageous” remarks made by Trump, a political analyst in Virginia says.
“Donald Trump is in the process of running for president and part of his strategy from a rhetorical level is to simply say as many outrageous things as he can,” said Keith Preston, the chief editor and director of AttacktheSystem.com.
“That’s part of how he builds his image and reputation,” Preston told Press TV on Sunday.
“Donald Trump is very inconsistent in the things that he says and most of his statements are rhetorical in nature and they’re intended for the shock effect that they get,” he added.
On Saturday, Trump criticized US President Barack Obama and the nuclear agreement with Iran, saying he was “like a baby” after expressing that Tehran has yet to follow the “spirit” of the deal.
“I hear Obama is very unhappy with Iran because he feels they haven’t lived up to the ‘spirit’ of the agreement. What the hell did he think was going to happen? He is like a baby. He’s like a baby,” Trump said during a campaign rally in Wisconsin.
Obama acknowledged that the nuclear deal has been successful so far, but emphasized that more work still needed to be done to implement the accord.
Trump has propelled himself as the GOP frontrunner by framing himself as an anti-establishment outsider.
However, his campaign has been defined by controversy from the beginning, including disparaging remarks about women, immigrants and Muslims.
