Former Trump Official Says Iran Nuclear Deal Empowers Tehran

Objectivity 3.2 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.8

Officials believe Iran is only weeks away from having enough fuel to make a nuclear weapon. Len Khodorkovsky, a former senior adviser to Trump’s Iran Envoy, pointed out Iran was in its weakest economic and military position when Trump left office. After Biden’s first year, Tehran regained momentum after Biden eased the sanctions Trump imposed. “I think the only way to reverse the progress that the Iranian regime has made today is to turn maximum pressure to excruciating pressure,” Khodorkovsky said.
