5 of Trump's Most Outrageous Claims at the AIPAC Conference

Donald Trump's address to the annual conference of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) was classic Trump for rhetorical fireworks and vague promises. But as the man gets closer to the nomination of the Republican Party, his words are beginning to carry greater weight—and have a dangerous effect on foreign affairs. Here are the top five most outrageous claims he made in his Monday speech.


1) Trump smears the UN on behalf of Israel.

2) Trump spreads dangerous lies about Palestinians.

3) Trump continues to malign President Obama's foreign policy.

4) Trump mocks Iran nuclear arrangement with the U.S. brokered by John Kerry and Obama.

5) Perhaps Trump's biggest smear of the night against Palestinians.
