Just who the Obama administration needs giving them foreign policy advice -- birther king Donald Trump. Maybe he should just stick to bankrupting his businesses.

The Iranian nuclear talks have been extended until this Wednesday, so naturally Fox blowhard Bill-O thought their audience should hear from grifter Trump on what they should do next. Trump happily proceeded to rattle off every single RNC-approved right-wing talking point that they've been repeating ad nauseum about the deal since negotiations began.

From Fox's blog: Trump: Obama Seems 'Desperate' for Iran Deal, Is a 'Terrible Negotiator':

Donald Trump weighed in on "The O'Reilly Factor" about the Iran nuclear deal and what he would do if he was at the negotiating table.

"I'd do a good job to start off with," Trump told Bill O'Reilly. "I mean [John Kerry] has to immediately say this is what we want and if he doesn't get it, he's got to walk."

Trump remarked that making a deal with Iran is something that could be done in "one day."

"The Iranians and the Persians are generally great negotiators," he said. "We are terrible negotiators. The people representing the Obama administration and Obama himself are terrible negotiators."

"All you have to do is look at our trade, five for one," Trump said, referencing the administration trading Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban members.

He said that the Obama administration seems "desperate" and that's why they are bad negotiators.

"For one thing they seem desperate and everything I see is it looks like desperation," Trump said. "For another thing, it's hard to believe they really don't seem like they like Israel. Whether they do or not, I don't know."

Ed. Note: This is not an April Fool's deception, but it is a joke.
