Trump: Since I came in, Iran is under siege

“Iran is no longer the same country,” said US President Donald Trump at a cabinet meeting on Wednesday. “They can do what they want there, frankly, but they’re pulling people out. They’re pulling people out of Yemen. Iran wants to survive now … They are under siege and no longer trying to bolster their presence there.”  Blaming the $150bn Tehran received from Barack Obama, Trump said. “Iran was going to take over everything and destroy Israel while they’re at it. They would soon have had nuclear weapons. Iran is a much different country right now,” he said, “They’re having riots every week in every town and are under siege.” Trump then added. “I’d love to negotiate with Iran… but they are not yet ready.”
