US Presidential hopeful Donald Trump bashed the nuclear deal with Iran in an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday, saying "They [Iran] will have nuclear weapons."

"They are going to take over parts of the world that you wouldn't believe. And I think it's going to lead to a nuclear holocaust."

He continued by describing how he would have negotiated the deal, saying he wouldn't have allowed Iran any of it's frozen funds,and would have doubled up on sanctions against the country.

The real estate mogul described the team that negotiated the agreement, including Secretary of State John Kerry, as "incompetent."

Nevertheless, he said, it would be "very tough" to rip up the deal, as some critics have called for. But "I'm really good at looking at a contract," Trump said, and "as bad as the contract is, I will be so tough on that contract."

Congress has until Sept. 17 to accept or reject the pact. President Barack Obama has said the deal is the best option for achieving stability in the Middle East and that scuttling it would be a historic mistake.
