"I Have Decided": Trump Says He Has Made Decision On Iran Deal

Tyler Durden's picture

Following his extremely aggressive statements yesterday at The United Nations regarding Iran, President Trump has told reporters this morning that:

"I have decided," when asked what he’s going to do about Iran deal.

However he refused to say what the decision is, responding"I'll let you know."

But judging by his harsh comments yesterday...

The Iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy. It has turned a wealthy country, with a rich history and culture, into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violent, bloodshed and chaos. The longest suffering victims of Iran's leaders are, in fact, its own people. Rather than use its resources to improve Iranian live, its oil profits go to fund Hezbollah and other terrorists that kill innocent muslims and attack their peaceful Arab and Israeli neighbors.


This wealth, which rightly belongs to Iran's people, also goes to shore up bashar Al Assad's dictatorship, fuel Yemen's civil war, and undermine peace throughout the entire Middle East. We cannot let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building dangerous missiles and we cannot abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program.


The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into. Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States, and I don't think you've heard the last of it. Believe me.


It is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that Iran's government end its pursuit of death and destruction. It is time for the regime to free all Americans and citizens of other nations that they have unjustly detained. Above all, Iran's government must stop supporting terrorists, begin serving its own people, and respect the sovereign rights of its neighbors. The entire world understands that the good people of Iran want change, and other than the vast military power of the United States, that Iran's people are what their leaders fear the most. This is what causes the regime to restrict internet access, tear down satellite dishes, shoot unarmed student protesters, and imprison political reformers.

It would seem hard for him not to back away from Obama's deal.

Shortly after Trump's threats, Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said on Twitter that the accord “is not (re)negotiable. A 'better' deal is pure fantasy.”

But perhaps most notable, this 'decision' comes hours after Russia branded U.S. President Donald Trump’s hostility toward the Iranian nuclear agreement as “very worrying,” vowing to do everything it can to protect the pact.

“We will defend this document, this consensus, which was met with relief by the entire international community and strengthened both regional and international security,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters in New York Tuesday after meeting U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

This, if Trump decides to abandon the deal, yet another cold-war front with Russia will be opened, and which would further escalate the already tense geopolitical situation in the middle-east.

Trump has brokered so many deals since January 21! My math could be a little off, but the exact number is… zero?

THAT includes all YUGE, small, and tiny deals.  ;-)

You give him too much credit. Most of it goes to Goldman Sachs.

Well with the sudden, historic and unexpected outbreak of PEACE in the region, let's hope that talk and paper deals are all that are involved.

Let the guns fall silent.  Fuck the neolibcon agenda of killing for profit and (false) control.

The Alarmist's picture

Great, another Decider. Only difference is that he follows his reality TV instincts by making a teaser to keep us hanging on through the commercials.

Jim in MN's picture

He talks and lets his generals scurry about.  But other than a cruise missile volley and a MOAB, no one's getting killed.

Think it over.  While he thinks it over.

And over.

And over.

And....no one's getting shot, shhhhhh, let the man think.

Getting it yet?

Chess dimensions are sneaky.......LOL

Well, he is “The Decider” now.

The first time I read that speech the Iran references all read like Israel. I need some new glasses I think.

Abbott will give his blessing...

Gov. Greg Abbott flew to Israel Saturday on a plane belonging to Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire casino owner and megadonor active in Republican national politics.

A spokesman for the governor confirmed that Abbott flew on Adelson’s 737 after Jewish Insider and The Dallas Morning News first reported it Monday.
Adelson is a top spender in Republican politics known for his fierce support of Israel and his friendship with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Abbott met with Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Monday to discuss the Texas-Israeli relationship and reiterate Abbott’s opposition to Iran — a nation whose relationship with Israel has long been tense.

It was discussed with the prime minister, as well as other leaders in Israel,” Abbott said. “… I made very clear to the prime minister that he has no greater ally on the globe than Texas.”

As soon as he tells Mad Dog what Bibi said... You can bet Iran is about to be attacked.  USD is failing, the rat has been backed into the corner... Things probably going to start getting ugly..

By not working with Congress, Obama left all of these decisions in the hands of the next President.  If Obama had allowed Congress to do its job and decide on these measures, Trump wouldn't have the power to make or break Obama's deals.

Like it or not, Iran is on the path with North Korea to develope ICBMs and hydrogen bombs.  They are working together.  Unless the NK situation is reversed, we will be facing a nuckear armed world.  A world where nuclear war will eventually happen.  And, it may happen on American soil.

You have to be able to look and think beyond the end of your nose to realize the stakes involved with doing nothing.

Can you support those assertions with regard to Iran?

Or am I supposed to believe it "like it or not"?

Iran's strength lies in its ability to live without the dollar and thrive. It also has one of the largest educated group of young people on the planet.
Has lots of oil and gas too.

Iran doesn't need nuclear weapons its big FRIENDS have them

Iran is the one foretold to rise out of nowhere to set off the destruction of the global financial system. Our fight is with the unseen wicked spirits who know their day draws near

HopefulCynic's picture

You are an ignorant fool, even Obama who was very ignorant knew that Iran did not want the bomb and does not want the bomb. Iran is not to what you are used to, which are hypocrites, So when the leaders of Iran repeatedly say that ALL WMD's should be destroyed and are inmoral for anyone to poses, you can be sure they mean it. 

kochevnik's picture

Congress does not even read bills the Shadow Government writes.  And your government drops nuclear bombs.  Other nations simply want you to stop bombing them

No.That decision was made by the Zionist Entity in the ME. Satanyahoo was "very pleased" with the Don's UNGA war speech.

What a shame for this country.

As for those See Eye Ayy/Mo$$ad propaganda cartoons,only low IQ people and hasbara trolls believe them. Iran has respected the deal,every international agency ,even the American ones say this.But the US has not. From the very beginning,during the Faggot's era,US treasury put sanctions on foreigners trying to do business with Iran,they did not give back Iran's own money that was frozen(billions of $) and did everything possible to torpedo the deal(in the usual US tradition of not respecting any deal signed:the US is  agreement incapable,as the Russians said).

So,now the Don,is trying to find a way of getting rid of the deal,as the Zionist Entity asked.They put sanctions on Iran for no reason,except they do not like it and try to weaken it.

And this is against US interests,but hey ,we have to dance the Zionist Bar Mitzvah.

This will only accelerate the death of the petro-f*cking-dollar.

True. Both political parties are Israel's foreign policy enforcement arms. The U.S. sends at least $30b in aid to Israel every year. Jim Traficant exposed it and was silenced for his trouble. Likewise, Michael Collins and Bill Milton Cooper

despite giving exactly zero credit to russia in his UN speech he did point out the FACT that ISIS is now dead in Syria.

he called Assad a meanie a few times for forms sake but as an astute observer above remarked..while he's thinking...the bombs aren't falling.

at least that

veritas semper vinces's picture

ISIS/AlQaeda was defeated by the coalition of courage and heroism:Syria,Iran,Hezbollah and Russia,whom he labeled "the axis of evil" and the Don took credit for this. What a disgrace.It had zero US input.US only helped ISIS/AlQaeda,providing air cover and rescuing their leaders. But,hey,US played well,at least until the pesky Russians intervened,the role of ISIS fighter.I guess we can give it an Oscar for this.After all,they did give an Oscar to the AlQaeda PR firm=the White Helmets,so the first step was made.

Strange. The Russian commander in Syria has noted that the most intense firing on the SAA forces on the east bank of the Euphrates comes from areas occupied by the US SF and the rebranded moderate head choppers now known as the SDF. The US military has also air dropped some ground forces between the SAA and the oil wells on the east bank of the Euphrates. Somebody is desperate for a shooting match to start.

..like Iranian Valerie and the magic “sweetest sound” muslim negro did."

Apparently you, like many in the US, didn't read all the news stories to the end.  In the end paragraphs, the stories did mention that the money sent from the US to Iran was money Iran had had on deposit in New York banks in 1979 when they threw out their US-provided dictator, and the US, in spite, unlawfully impounded said funds.

As part of the deal to allow almost unlimited international inspections of their nuclear program, Iran demanded their money be returned to them.

"Iranian Valerie" and "The Magic Muslim Negro" for once agreed to abide by international law in that particular case.

It's a pretty sad state of affairs when returning items stolen represents some sort of moral failing.

Im going to take a shot in the dark and say either mattis or mcmaster was the real 'decider' on this one. Whatever he says is going to what one or both of them told him to do.

What he really meant to say.


The merican government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy. It has turned a wealthy country, with a rich history and culture, into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, arms, hired mercinaries and chaos. The longest suffering victims of merica's leaders are, in fact, its own people. Rather than use its resources to improve merican lives, its tax payers money goes to fund the MIC and other terrorists that kill innocent people and attack peaceful countries for regime change, partnering with israel.

Teasing around because he doesn't care if this leads to WWIII.  Brilliant!  Kick them around until they beg for forgiveness.  Don't be concerned.  The MIC and Banksters will be OK.  We've got so many crazy young people creating havoc in the US cities that we need to send them off to kill or be killed.  The stupid and unlucky will be slaughtered and those who return will be told to fend for themselves because they are no longer of use to us globalists.  US citizens are useful idiots.  They multiply like rabbits, especially the illegals who fight to bring their young, soon to be soldiers, for us to use.  They can easily be talked into serving as cannon fodder.  All we need tell them is "do it for your country and to protect your families."  The stupid bastards never learn.  They continue sending their young, strong offspring to do our bidding.  We are well on our way to being in control of the world.  Think of all the slave labor just waiting out there to do our bidding.  Only a few more sovereign nations to destroy.  Think of it!  Seven Billion slaves who will be fignting among each other to be our slaves.  They will do anything for us and all we need to do is provide crude shelter and a bit of food.  Bwwwaaaahhh !!!!!!!
