Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry has slammed President Barack Obama's foreign policy and criticized the administration's lack of support for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech before Congress.
Perry said he strongly supported the visit of Netanyahu
and believed everyone in Congress should have been present to hear what he had to say.
"You have this president who has had feckless foreign policy," Perry told Fox News' "Fox & Friends"
on Tuesday. "This is another message to our allies: You have to have an odd relationship with this administration if they're going to support you. Most of our allies are very concerned that this administration will not be there if they get in a ringer, whatever that may be."
Perry also expressed concern that Obama will accept less-than-favorable terms in the nuclear negotiations with Iran because he has an overriding objective to strike a deal for the sake of his personal foreign policy legacy.
"All this seems to go back to Iran and him wanting to get a deal with Iran," Perry said. "He's willing to trade practically anything to get that deal. It's putting every other country in jeopardy."
Perry demanded more transparency from the Iran negotiations.
"We need to know what's going on, and the American people need to know," Perry said.
Earlier this week, the potential 2016 presidential candidate offered commentary on how the United States should combat the Islamic State (ISIS), saying boots on the ground will be needed.
"We are going to have to have our military actively engaged with those special operators from those other countries to eliminate the ISIS threat," said Perry on CNN's "State of the Union."
