Opinion Remember how pleased the President was to replace NAFTA with a new USMCA? So squeeze some minor concessions from Iran and rebrand the nuclear deal to give Trump’s ego a stroke.  NO, says Matt Gillow, communications & events manager at the British Foreign Policy Group. Is a new “Trump deal” the answer to the Iran nuclear problem? European leaders have failed dismally to influence Trump, and now it’s time to try a different approach: manipulate his vanity and take advantage of his narcissism.  by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeDaily FunnyFemale Athlete Fails You Can’t Look Away FromDaily FunnyBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMisterStoryWoman files for divorce after seeing this photoMisterStoryNoteableyJulia Robert’s Daughter Turns 16 And Looks Just Like Her MomNoteableyzenherald.comDolly Finally Took Off Her Wig, Fans Gaspedzenherald.comJournalistateTeacher Wears Dress Everyday, Mom Sets Up CamJournalistateNinjaJournalistMichael Jordan’s Divorce Settlement Has Finally Been Revealed.NinjaJournalistPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

Withdrawal from the current pan, in exchange for a new “Trump deal” lacking  substance, risks not only progress with Iran, but also the chance for British foreign policy independence. A new Trump deal obviously won’t immediately stop Iran being a belligerent presence in the region, but preventing Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons is essential.

The UK shouldn’t miss an opportunity to shape a distinct foreign policy strategy, with a focus on convening the big picture conversations on today’s issues — from climate diplomacy through to nuclear proliferation.  Wednesday 15 January 2020 6:19 am YES, says Ben Kelly, a commentator for Reaction. The fact is that no new deal will be a silver bullet to tensions in the Middle East.

This has led to predictable derision, but I think the Prime Minister is onto something.  Share whatsapp DEBATE: Is a new ‘Trump deal’ the answer to the Iran nuclear problem?
