Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is calling President-elect Donald Trump a strong supporter of Israel, and says he wants to work with Trump to undo the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration and other world powers.

"I know Donald Trump," Netanyahu told CBS's "60 Minutes" in an interview that will air Sunday night. "He feels very warmly about the Jewish state, about the Jewish people...there's no question about that."

Netanyahu said there are "various ways of undoing" the 2015 deal, in which Iran agreed to limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions on its oil industry and finances.

"I have about five things in my mind," Netanyahu said, declining to go into further detail.

Trump has been harshly critical of the nuclear deal, and Netanyahu tried to block it.
