United States President Barack Obama on Monday said he was yet to hear a strong factual argument against a nuclear deal with Iran that holds up to scrutiny, and criticised rhetoric about the deal from some leading members of the Republican party.

Obama said the rhetoric from Mike Huckabee, bidding to lead the Republican party into the next presidential election, was part of a pattern of comments that were ridiculous and sad.

Obama also criticised comments by Republican candidate Donald Trump about war veteran John McCain, saying presidential debates deserve better than that.
