Dread and Shoulders

From the legendary handshakes, to the giant white hat, to the tree planting, to the odd dandruff-wiping, there have already been plenty of meme-able moments from the French President Emmanuel Macron’s state visit. But the key question around the world is whether Macron can convince Trump not to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. On Tuesday, Trump continued his critique of the deal and answered a question about Iran potentially restarting its nuke program with a threat: “They’re not going to be restarting anything. They restart it they’re going to have big problems, bigger than they’ve ever had before.” (If we’re talking about them restarting the program, doesn’t that imply that they’ve actually stopped it? And doesn’t that imply it’s working?)

+ While Trump was tough on Iran, he was complimentary when it came to North Korea: “We’re having very good discussions … Kim Jong Un — he really has been very open and I think very honorable from everything we’re seeing.” (I’m pretty sure that’s the first time Kim Jung Un’s LinkedIn profile got endorsed for honor …)
