    Default Trump Might Go With $15 Billion Bailout for Iran, Sources Say

    so where did his Let's-all-hate-Iran spiel go?......….it's a staple at his Nuremburg rallies



    President Donald Trump has left the impression with foreign officials, members of his administration, and others involved in Iranian negotiations that he is actively considering a French plan to extend a $15 billion credit line to the Iranians if Tehran comes back into compliance with the Obama-era nuclear deal.

    Trump has in recent weeks shown openness to entertaining President Emmanuel Macron’s plan, according to four sources with knowledge of Trump’s conversations with the French leader. Two of those sources said that State Department officials, including Secretary Mike Pompeo, are also open to weighing the French proposal, which would effectively ease the economic sanctions regime that the Trump administration has applied on Tehran for more than a year.

    remember the right wing chants of "Obama gave Iran $150B!"...……………..wasn't true, see below

    ……………………………………………………………………..

    First of all, former President Barack Obama didn’t give “150 billion in cash” to Iran.

    The nuclear agreement included China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union, so Obama didn’t carry out any part of it on his own. The deal did lift some sanctions, which lifted a freeze on Iran’s assets that were held largely in foreign, not U.S., banks. And, to be clear, the money that was unfrozen belonged to Iran. It had only been made inaccessible by sanctions aimed at crippling the country’s nuclear program.

    Secondly, $150 billion is a high-end estimate of the total that was freed up after some sanctions were lifted. U.S. Treasury Department estimates put the number at about $50 billion in “usable liquid assets,” according to 2015 testimony from Adam Szubin, acting under secretary of treasury for terrorism and financial intelligence.

    The part that the meme gets right, though, is that the deal didn’t get congressional approval. The Obama administration had maintained that the agreement wasn’t a treaty, which would have required approval by the Senate. Republicans did try to block the deal, but they weren’t able to get enough support to pass the legislation in the Senate.

    However, the U.S. is now no longer part of the deal. Trump pulled out in May 2018.

    He sees his approval numbers going down the toilet so he's getting desperate to try anything that might create the first positive foreign policy outcome since he took office.

    I don't oppose this step if Trump takes it

    I don't believe that Iran is actually pursuing nuclear weapons, I think Israel is just using America to lash out at their main regional rival and the nuclear deal is being misappropriated to just being about Israel's interests.

    agreed I think it's a great idea because Iran only gets more dangerous when we walk out on deals

    and Netanhyayhoo would definitely love it if we invaded or just bombed the shit out of em
