ALEXIS LEVINSON (Senior political Reporter at National Review, where she covers the 2016 Presidential and Senate races. She's also a former staff writer at Roll Call) CONGRESS GRILLS KERRY, OBAMA OFFICIALS ON IRAN NUKE DEAL A top Senate Republican accused the Obama administration on Thursday of cutting a deal with Iran that paves its path to a nuclear weapon, telling Secretary of State John Kerry: "You've been fleeced." Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker tore into the nuclear agreement at the start of a hearing before his committee, where Kerry and other top officials were testifying. He said he walked away from a briefing with the secretary a day earlier "depressed," and claimed Iran could eventually build a bomb by simply waiting out the clock and "abiding by this agreement." "From my perspective, Mr. Secretary, I'm sorry ... I believe you've been fleeced," Corker said. Kerry, though, vigorously defended the agreement, calling it "fantasy, plain and simple," to think the United States failed to hold out for a better deal at the bargaining table. "Let me underscore, the alternative to the deal we've reached isn't what we're seeing ads for on TV," he told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in the first public hearing on the controversial deal to lift economic and other sanctions in exchange for concessions of the Islamic state's nuclear program.

Fox News Radio's JARED HALPERN (Live from Laredo, Texas) DONALD TRUMP VISITED THE MEXICAN BORDER YESTERDAY Donald Trump on Thursday landed in this Texas border town to meet with local officials, speak with law enforcement and tour the border between the U.S. and Mexico that has become a contentious symbol in his campaign for president. four hours later, he was gone. Speaking from in front of a road leading in and out of Mexico after a roughly 15-minute meeting with the mayor, city manager and other Laredo officials, Trump said he had learned a lot about the situation along that border and once again called for sweeping efforts to address the "huge problem" of illegal immigration. And in this city that is 95% Hispanic, Trump didn't back away from his trademark confidence and claimed a broad base of support from Latino voters. "I think I'll win the Hispanic vote," Trump told reporters after touring the World Trade Bridge in Laredo, Texas. "Over the years, thousands and thousands of Hispanics have worked for me." The visit was the culmination of more than a month of attention centered around Trump's branding of undocumented Mexican immigrants as killers and rapists -- remarks that have drawn condemnation from the Republican establishment but also helped rocket him to the top of the polls.
