It looks like Donald Trump is trying to create an almost exact duplicate of Obama’s Iran nuclear agreement.

Only this time HE wants the credit.

Donald Trump has long trashed the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement as “the worst deal ever,” a “disaster” that didn’t cover nearly enough of the Islamist-led country’s nefarious behavior.

In recent weeks, however, the president has indicated that the Barack Obama-era deal might not be so bad after all.

Trump has repeatedly urged Iran to engage in negotiations with him, while saying that Tehran’s nuclear ambitions are his chief concern — “A lot of progress has been made. And they’d like to talk,” Trump asserted Tuesday at the White House. His aides and allies, meanwhile, have recently suggested that Iran and other countries should follow the guidelines of a deal they themselves have shunned as worthless.

At times, analysts and former officials say, it sounds like Trump wants to strike a deal that essentially mirrors the agreement that his White House predecessor inked — even if he’d never be willing to admit it. Iranian officials seem willing to egg him on, saying they’ll talk so long as Trump lifts the sanctions he’s imposed on them and returns to the 2015 Iran deal. And as European ministers warn that the existing deal is nearly extinct, Trump may feel like he is backed into a corner and running out of options.

“Trump got rid of the Iran nuclear deal because it was Barack Obama’s agreement,” said Jarrett Blanc, a former State Department official who helped oversee the 2015 deal’s implementation. “If you were to present to Trump the same deal and call it Trump’s deal, he’d be thrilled.”

So not only did Trump sabotage the Iran deal simply because it had Obama’s name associated with it, but now he want to create an exact duplicate that he can brand as his own. 

Trump has been taking credit for the work of others all of his life, why would we expect him to be any different while pretending to be president?

    Just like NAFTA became the USMCA. Both trade deals are very similar but Don the Con gets to lie about it and say he negotiated a better deal.

    It’ll ultimately be less, if it happens at all.. Kim and Putin have shown the world how to play this fool, and Iran hasn’t slept though the lesson.

      Every single day he shows why he is not fit for office. And Republicans do absolutely nothing about it.

    My aunt and uncle who are naturally oblivious, took me to lunch and insisted on eating at a greasy diner. There on tv was one america news. I felt like i was in twilight zone. The shit they were spewing on that propaganda network made the unpalatable food even worst. It was donald, donald, donald. And guess what folks according to those putin news channels trump is a wonderful president. Plus youcan buy a coin with his ugly face on it. It dawned on me then that as americans we are two americas. Thats why trump keeps getting more bolder as dYs go by. And the news channel even quated mcconnell as saying the next election will be about fighting the socailist. And when they talked about immigrants they used footage that showed hoards of people trekking on over to america. I even got alarmed until i realized that videos could be manipulated.
