WATCH | President Trump delivers remarks with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.

President Trump said at a meeting with Israeli officials on Monday that Iran must stop funding and training "terrorists and militias" and that it would never have nuclear weapons, reports CNBC

"Most importantly, the United States and Israel can declare with one voice that Iran must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon -- never, ever -- and must cease its deadly funding, training and equipping of terrorists and militias, and it must cease immediately," Trump said at a meeting with Israeli officials. 

The U.S. has designated Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism. Iran's support has been lent to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad during Syria's civil war, Houthi rebels in Yemen's civil war, and Hezbollah in Lebanon. 

"There is a growing realization among your Arab neighbors that they have common cause with you in the threat posed by Iran," Trump told Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
