An unlikely pair of public figures have come together in pursuit of a common goal: real estate magnate Donald Trump and Texas Senator Ted Cruz — both candidates for the Republican presidential nomination — plan to combine forces in order to protest the Iran deal. While Trump and Cruz have sparred along the campaign trail, the two have expressed a greater interest in shutting down President Barack Obama’s controversial diplomatic initiative with Iran.

Cruz campaign officials released a statement revealing that the senator was the one to reach out to Trump, calling on the frontrunner to attend a rally to be held in front of the Capitol. Several influential think tanks and activist groups — chief among them the Tea Party Patriots, the Center for Security Policy, and the Zionist Organization of America — have contributed the funds necessary to host the demonstration.

The details of the rally have yet to materialize. “We are thankful for all their hard work on this effort and will have more details on time, date, and location as they are finalized,” the Cruz campaign announced.

Prior to the announcement, Trump had suggested that such an event would occur during a campaign stop in South Carolina. “I think we’re going to do something next week or the week after about the Iran pact… We’re going to have a tremendous crowd come out,” Trump said, almost certainly referring to the upcoming rally.

While neither candidate has disclosed additional information about the rally, Zionist Organization of America President Morton Klein suggested that it would take place on September 9. “Anybody who’s in public life and opposed to the deal, it’s useful to have them speak out and oppose this catastrophe,” Klein said in a statement to Politico. “It’s not a bad deal, it’s a catastrophe. Every American should be freaking out about arming and funding the Hitler of the day.”
