Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu has resumed his attacks on a nuclear deal with Iran, seeking Donald Trump's help to smash a cornerstone of the Obama administration's foreign policy legacy.During the U.S. election campaign, Trump called the pact – against which Netanyahu lobbied long and hard – a "disaster" and "the worst deal ever negotiated". But he has also said it would be hard to overturn an agreement enshrined in a U.N. resolution. In recent months, however, Netanyahu had largely refrained from attacking the Iran deal as Israel finalized a 10-year, $38 billion military aid package with the Obama administration.Last year, before the agreement was signed, Netanyahu angered the White House by addressing the U.S. Congress, where he argued that the deal would pave Iran's path to nuclear arms.Asked if Iran, which has denied seeking atomic weapons, would move quickly toward a bomb if the agreement was undone, Netanyahu said that was not the case prior to its signing.
