Former Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman: I support Trump on US embassy move to Jerusalem and Iran nuclear deal exit

Democrats and Republicans need to support solid policies regardless of which party takes the lead such as President Donald Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, Joe Lieberman told CNBC on Thursday.

“I happen to agree with President Trump on these two decisions,” the former Democratic and independent senator from Connecticut said in a “Squawk Box” interview.

“Politics have become what they weren’t when I became involved, which is the parties used to bring together people with different opinions and help to work with people from the other party to actually get things done,” said Lieberman, who as Al Gore’s running mate in 2000 became the first Jewish candidate on a major-party presidential ticket.
