Trump blowing harder against Iran

Donald Trump claims Iran used cash given by Barack Obama for terrorism and corruption

Donald Trump has claimed money given to Iran by Barack Obama when he was President was used to fund terrorism and corruption.

The US President said “all of the money that President Obama so foolishly gave them went into terrorism and into their ‘pockets,”‘ referring to the global deal that removed some economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program.

Mr Trump opposes the deal.

Because he opposes anything Obama did on principle. Iran is a nasty theocracy that supports radical Shiite Muslim groups and is in turn opposed by radical Sunni Muslim groups and governments like like notoriously illiberal Saudi Arabia, but the deal was about its nuclear weapons program, which was stopped. Can you imagine terrorists with access to nukes? But because Obama did it, Trump hates it. So he pisses on Iran. Good move. Exactly the way to go to get nuclear armed terrorists.

Man’s a complete arse.

The irony is that if Trump and his extremist, evangelical Christianist base, the political butthole of America, got their way at home in the US, Iran would look like a model of rationality and democracy in comparison.
