following donald trump’s summit with kim jong-un insingapore, iran released a few statements about their feelings on this summit and also warned kim jong-un about who donald trump really is and how likely he is to pull out of the deal that he has promised to uphold. so let’s get to the statements from the iranian foreign ministry spokesperson, he says — which is actually true, that is what trump did with the iran nuclear deal, he avoided the advice or ignored the advice of his own aides and went forward and decided to pull out of that deal. now, iran also responded with the following — i hope that is true, but there are really no promises. finally, just to give you an idea of trump’s record of pulling out of deals — and of course we all know that he pulled out of the paris climate agreement, that was the first agreement he pulled out of in his presidency. where are we in life that someone is warning the north korean leader about the president of the united states? i think it’s much less about warning kim jong-un, i don’t think iran really cares to warn him, i think what they are trying to do, and it’s a smart tactic, is make a statement about how trump just signed an agreement that has very few details, it’s incredibly vague, doesn’t have a timetable or verification, but pulled out of a very comprehensive agreement and deal with iran, and i’ll get to the details of iran’s deal just to remind everyone that there was verification, there was a timetable, there were international leaders who were able to verify through regular checks that iran was holding up it’s part of the deal.
but with kim jong-un and north korea that is not the case, at least where we stand right now there is no timetable, there is no verification. iran is making a point that america really can’t be trusted anymore with this guy at the helm and they are probably right, we have said the very same thing, he is given to reckless decision-making that’s not based on anything more than a gut feeling and no knowledge of facts, that’s the reason he left the iran deal, but ana is right, they are not counseling north korea, they are saying america is not to be trusted anymore and in a sense we are a more honorable nation that america is. and not only is trump pulling out of these deals that would essentially destroy — doing what he’s doing is destroying the trust, the trust that other countries have toward the united states, who is to say that, hey, we will sign this deal with the u.s. and then a following president will come in and pull out. that trust can be destroyed within seconds, which trump has proven, but it’s hard to build that trust, so he is isolating us from our allies, he is pulling out of deals that we should be upholding, for the main purpose of being trustworthy in this international — in these international issues, but more importantly i think that what we are seeing with this agreement with north korea is just incredibly hypocritical behavior by donald trump in his leadership, but also by the very base that supports donald trump, because they were also the individuals who wanted to pull out of the iran nuclear deal. why? because it didn’t do enough, we didn’t rein in the iranians enough. except that deal was much more comprehensive and detailed — these were the terms of the iran nuclear deal, just some of the terms, that were verified, they were verifiable, that was written into the agreement.
there is none of that with this north korea agreement. those who are backing trump right now will tell you maybe we’ll get that stuff built in. we know that chances are, and i say this because his own advisors were instrumental in scuttling the deal, they couldn’t pull all of the specifics together for a deal, maybe they will pull them together, but what ana is talking about, those specifics we ran through, they would be terrific to hammer out in a deal like this. there is just no history of being able to work that out. more from the iran nuclear deal, which again we pulled out of — that’s huge. it’s huge, and again it’s very specific. and what concerns me is not just the fact that this agreement with north korea lacks any details and is in credibly vague, what concerns me is that trump is alienating himself from his own advisors who understand the nuances and the complexities of this situation with north korea. he is not interested in any advice. and i don’t trust him enough to make any deal with north korea. i don’t think he knows what plutonium is, i don’t think he knows what uranium is. i mean, these are complicated issues that he doesn’t have experience in, which is why he needs his advisors. but as you all know, he has been acting unilaterally for a while now, he feels emboldened to do that, and he has been seeking counsel from his personal friends rather than the individuals who surround him in the white house. that’s lunacy, and it’s a good summary of where we are, i think at the end of this trump says make a deal with north korea and they make some sort of cobbled together deal that likely won’t be verifiable, obviously we expect some sort of deal after that photo op and lunch, but i don’t see anything more than a surface kind of agreement cobbled together, simply because trump is impatient and wants the headlines.
at the time that the nuclear deal was signed with iran, obama was quoted as saying the following — and what we have heard from trump in regard to north korea over and over again is i trust them, i have a gut feeling, i can read them, it’s about attitude — no, no, that means nothing in international issues. that means absolutely nothing when dealing with adversaries. it means everything to have verification and the process in which you can prove that they are holding up their side of the deal. even the deal made with russia, the old soviet union, reagan’s line was trust but verify. he was ready to say i trust them, but verification is also very important. so clearly verification is the key part of any future deal, as i say i just don’t know because trump is in such a hurry to get the headline, to claim and agreement, to pick up his nobel peace prize, i just don’t know that there is urgency on his part about making deals that have verification at their core.
