Deal Breaker

“I’m here to tell you one thing: Iran lied. Big time.” Last week, Marcon and Merkel made pilgrimages to the White House in large part to convince President Trump to stay in the Iran nuclear deal. Benjamin Netanyahu made his opposing case over the weekend, and on Monday, Bibi shared a PowerPoint presentation with the world. Krishnadev Calamur in The Atlantic: “Those hoping for a smoking gun of Iran’s cheating on the deal it signed with world powers to curb its nuclear program were likely to be disappointed. The fact that Iran was at one point pursuing nuclear weapons will likely be a surprise to no one—and indeed was a rationale for concluding the nuclear agreement in the first place.”

+ At least one person was impressed with the presentation. Trump said it helped show he’s “100% right” about the Iran deal.
