11/21 Trita Parsi: The Iran Deal and Foreign Policy in Trump’s America

November 21, 2016

How we can already tell the Iran Deal has been a success by the fact we aren’t talking about bombing Iran. The extreme danger and paradoxical opportunities of Trump’s presidency. Trump doing his best to be the most sane person in his government. How to clarify and recalibrate our positions regarding Saudi Arabia and Iran. How the middle-east figures into Obama’s plans to “pivot” to Asia, and how Trump’s victory jeopardizes the move.

On the fun half – Reza Aslan on the danger of considering Islam “political” instead of religious. Reince Priebus won’t rule out muslim ban. Steve Bannon’s anti-Wall Street populism mixed with white nationalism. Neo-nazis rally in Washington DC. The Republican war on voting rights will intensify. (32:10)
