correspondent atika shubert. >> reporter: christine, this iran deal is reshaping the political landscape in the region. israel is a major concern as an ally of the united states. we have spoken to the spokesperson for the prime minister. he confirmed that a telephone conversation did take place between netanyahu and president obama, but would not say what specifically was said in the conversation. he said the focus of israel remains the loopholes in the deal as israel sees it. with all of the limitations in the agreement, iran can still develop a nuclear weapon within 10 to 15 years but also because of the lifting of sanctions, iran will now be able to fund its military allys in the region like hezbollah and hamas. it is not the only concern. saudi arabia wants reassurance from the united states. before the deal was done in may,

2:07 am
$362 million last year alone. with classic trump style, he calls his wealth vast it is hard to fill out the forms because if a building owned by trump is worth $1.5 billion, the box checked is for $50 million or more. it is important to note that trump did not make the details of the financial disclosure public so we could not yet verify he made $213 million over the 14 seasons he was on the show "the an pren tuesday." the other thing that donald trump has to talk about and has been certainly talking been it a lot is the fact he is doing well in the polls. just for one example, the washington post/abc poll showed 57% of republican voters say that they have a favorable view of him. that is a big jump. almost double from what it was in may. those are the things you are
