US President Donald Trump held a joint press conference with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday in Jerusalem, where the two discussed security ties and the threat Iran poses to the region. 

Speaking in front of cameras at the King David Hotel, where the US president will spend the night, Trump criticized Tehran for its unapologetic support for terrorism and its dismissive attitude towards the West. 

"Iran negotiated a fantastic deal with the last administration," Trump said in reference to his predecessor, Barack Obama, adding  "instead of saying thank you, by giving them a lifeline and prosperity," they continue to support terror.

"Maybe because they feel so good, they can do what they want... (but) Iran will never have nuclear weapons, that I can tell you," Trump added.
