Donald Trump daily displays his ignorance of history, of diplomacy, of anything to do with what happens outside of his buildings and business sites. Donald is very upset at the nuclear deal with Iran because, according to him, the United States is “giving $400,000,000 to Iran.” Well, examine the facts of this “deal.”
In 1953, a CIA operation led by Kermit Roosevelt(grandson of Theodore Roosevelt) organized the overthrow of a democratically elected secular government in Iran. This “revolution”– paid entirely by the CIA– led to the return to power of the Shah of Iran. So, the secular government of Prime Minister Mossadegh was ended. In 1979, the Shah was overthrown, and religious groups took over the government.
The Iranian government had paid for US arms. None were every sent since the Shah was gone. President Obama agreed–after an international court ruled–that Iran was entitled to return of ITS MONEY. This is the $400 million that Obama “gave” to Iran. Actually, it returned the money that belonged to Iran in the first place.
Of course, I doubt if Donald Trump could locate Iran on a map!
