Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says President-elect Donald Trump may be able to help undo the Iranian nuclear agreement.

“I think what options we have are much more than you think.  Many more,” Netanyahu said in a “60 Minutes” interview slated to air Sunday night.

The prime minister said he plans to discuss the options with Trump. 

Trump said throughout his presidential campaign that he would tear up the deal once he becomes president. The agreement, negotiated between the United States, Iran and other international powers, is aimed at curbing Iran’s nuclear program. 

“There are ways, various ways of undoing it,” said Netanyahu. “Yeah, I have about five things in my mind.”

When asked to name one of the options, Netanyahu said he would like to speak with Trump before revealing his ideas to “60 Minutes.”

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said last week that Trump cannot get rid of the nuclear agreement.

Netanyahu said he knows Trump “very well” and that the president-elect’s “support for Israel is clear.”

“He feels very warmly about the Jewish state, about the Jewish people and about Jewish people,” he said. “There’s no question about that.”
