What the Hell Does This Mean?

This was at a dinner with military leaders,
Is he talking about Iran or North Korea?

Do we want a storm when there is calm?

This strikes me as very dangerous talk.

Trump has accused Iran of not living up to the “spirit of the agreement” of its nuclear deal amid reports that he plans to withhold endorsement.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said this week that staying with the deal, under which Iran accepted strict curbs on its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief, was in US national security interests.

The chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, General Joseph Dunford, recently said that pulling out of the multilateral deal, which was signed by some of Washington’s closest allies, would affect US credibility and could hinder the ability of the US to strike security agreements in the future.

Trump’s secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, and national security advisor, HR McMaster, are both thought to have also advised Trump not to withhold certification, reports The Guardian.

  1. Most of Trumps statements are tactical. He thinks of himself as a deal maker. He thinks his statements are putting him in a better negotiating position. Facts are secondary to him.
