Adam Goodman joined David Fuscus, a fellow political strategist, and host Ed Berliner on NewsmaxTV’s Hard Line to discuss the continuing saga of the Iranian nuclear deal. In the Political Animal segment, they discussed he ongoing debate surrounding the agreement, which now has enough Senate support to be passed, and is still being protested in Washington D.C.
Goodman said that the American people are feeling more and more disconnected from foreign policy because the government and legislators are not listening. Despite opposition from around the country, legislators are still poised to put the deal in motion.
“The American public, in poll after poll, is solidly against this deal for a lot of cogent reasons,” said Goodman. “How do you feel if you’re the… nation of Israel with a power like Iran that’s dedicated to your extermination? How do you feel today about the resolve of America?”
“That is a presidential issue, and it’s an issue of leadership,” said Goodman.
The conversation turned to the online and television battle between Jeb Bush and Donald Trump, which the latter began with an Instagram post:

“I still feel that Jeb Bush could run this country,” said Goodman, citing Jeb Bush’s former success as Governor of Florida. However, Donald Trump currently commands the media, and his campaign has earned more airtime thus far than any other candidate’s.
“He’s got to do something to even the score,” said Goodman. “He’s tried engagement… and he’s trying something on top of that, which is maybe called social chicness.”
