US Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are expected to headline a Capitol Hill rally against US President Barack Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran, both candidates confirmed Thursday. Trump, the Republican front-runner by far, announced the event during a 45-minute speech in South Carolina. Cruz aides said the Texas senator extended the invitation to the billionaire developer ahead of the US Congress’ vote on the accord in mid-September, the AP reported.  Cruz’s campaign statement said the event is sponsored by Tea Party Patriots, the Center for Security Policy and the Zionist Organization of America. The Cruz campaign did not immediately offer other details, including the event date. Congress is expected to begin debate on the Iran accord when lawmakers return from recess Sept. 8.
