US President Donald Trump’s recent foreign policy moves make it more likely that Iran will attempt to make a nuclear bomb and bring Israel closer to war, former IDF intelligence chief Amos Yadlin said on Sunday.

Speaking at the Combating Terrorism Technology Startup Conference on national security and cyber issues in Tel Aviv, Yadlin said the North Korea summit will push Iran to renew its uranium enrichment and eventually pursue a nuclear bomb.

He said the same thing about Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.
