Trump says he would ‘certainly meet’ with Iran’s Rouhani

rouhani, trumpPresident Donald Trump says he would “certainly meet” with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani (hah-SAHN’ roh-HAH’-nee) if the Iranian leader was willing, adding he would do it with “no preconditions.”

Trump says during a joint news conference with Italy’s leader that he believes in meetings and is pointing to the benefits of recent meetings with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

The Trump administration withdrew from the landmark nuclear accord with Iran in May, saying it was too generous to Iran. The United States has vowed to boost sanctions until Iran changes its regional policies, including its support for regional militant groups.

    I don’t think Rouhani will be allowed by Khamanei to meet Trump. Obama tried several times to meet with Rouhani but could only talk on the phone with him. It takes guts to meet your enemy

    There he goes again Trump’s “Bad cop, good cop” game.

    Donald Trump seems to focus on his usual game of intimidation and accommodation when dealing with Iran. But unlike in Pyongyang, that will not work in Tehran.

    Trump is looking for deals and headlines in all the wrong places.
    Now America’s Middle East allies taste what it’s been like for Japan and Europe to watch while Trump embraces their adversaries.
