Will Trump's Iran Deal Ploy Work?
But if preventing Iran from acquiring the material needed to build a nuclear weapon is a critical U.S. national security priority, the Trump administration cannot sit on its hands and hope its negotiating partners come around to its position. The Trump administration can’t base a policy on hope. Instead, the White House needs to get real and focus on approaches which have at least a marginal chance of working.
