Chris Matthews: Netanyahu Tried to 'Take Over' US Foreign Policy

By    |   Tuesday, 03 March 2015 07:53 PM

MSNBC host Chris Matthews accused Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu of trying to "take over" American foreign policy in his speech to Congress on Tuesday.

In MSNBC post-speech coverage, Matthews, host of "Hard Ball,"  said Netanyahu's words were well-crafted and that he made "a hell of speech" outlining his opposition to a nuclear arms treaty with Iran.

"This man from a foreign government walked into the United States legislative chamber and tried to take over foreign policy," Matthews said.

"He said you should trust me, not your president on this," Matthews said. "I’m the man you should trust, I’m your true leader on this question of U.S. geopolitics. If you want to protect yourself, you must listen to me and not this president."

The Obama administration is pushing an agreement it says will halt Iran's nuclear plans for 10 years. Most Republicans and some Democrats believe Iran is only using the talks as a ruse while it continues developing nuclear weapons that can strike Israel, Europe and the United States.

Matthews called it a "remarkable day" when opposition leaders in Congress would allow such a thing to happen.

"What country in the world would let a foreign leader come in and attempt to wrest from the president control of U.S. foreign policy?" Matthews asked. "This was a takeover attempt by Netanyahu with his complying American partners to take American foreign policy out of the hands of the president."
