Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie is out with his second television commercial, assailing President Barack Obama over the Iran nuclear deal.

Against a backdrop of Iranians protesting the U.S. and burning her flag, the New Jersey governor accused Obama of giving “away the store to the Iranians – a group of people who since 1979 have been chanting ‘death to America.'”

“This was negotiated so badly that you wouldn’t let this president buy a car for you at a car dealership,” Christie is seen saying to the camera. “Now, he’s lying to the American people about how the deal’s going to work. I would’ve walked away from the table.”

The ad is set to begin airing in New Hampshire and Boston, according to the campaign.
