    Trump’s one opportunity left to survive with any positive legacy: dumping his Neocon, Zionist advisors

    NORTH CAROLINA - Well, for sure, the designation by Trump of the IRGC as a “terrorist” organization is a foolish move, but not Iran’s tit for tat response to it – designating the same for the U.S. central military command, or CENTCOM. This all can mostly present a warning for the remaining 5000 U.S. soldiers and diplomats in Iraq and the 2000 or so still lingering in Syria.

  • Trump - Obama Yesterday 12:50

    By Omid Asadi 

    Controversial conflict between two presidents!

    TEHRAN - Former President Barack Obama plans to play a bold role in confronting Trump in the presidential election of 2020. Over the past months, Obama has been trying to prevent the Republicans from re-emerging, especially during the mid-term elections in the Senate and the House of Representatives. Obama is also now struggling to play a tense role in the fight against Trump. Donald Trump, in turn, tries to point to Obama's role in this equation. Anyway, as we approach the time of the 2020 presidential election, the current president's and former US president's conflict will become more serious.

    TEHRAN - During the 2016 presidential race, the President of the United States officially and explicitly supported the withdrawal of Britain from the European Union. However, Trump is currently worried about how London is leaving Europe! Trump has repeatedly blamed the British prime minister for failing to conclude appropriate agreements with Europe. The issue is how the British government has become a passive player in the world.
