Washington D.C., Democrats continue to take Iran’s side against President Trump’s administration in the latest high stakes tactics. Ever since President Obama gave Iran billions of dollars in exchange for entering a deal with the U.S. not to build nuclear weapons, without Senate approval and without any kind of outside inspection requirement, Dems have continued to defend the deal and attack President Trump. But President Trump kept his campaign promise and scrapped the deal when he came into office in an attempt to renegotiate a better deal.

This isn’t the first time the Democrats have taken the side of our enemies. Democrats and the national press continue to defend China’s trade policies, defend Venezuela’s socialist dictator, defend Muslim Refugees’s entry into the U.S. from known terrorist countries, Dems continue to defend the Mexican Cartels and their trafficking of humans and drugs by blocking any wall or border enforcement.

Last year when President Trump moved to re-impose sanctions against Iran, Democrats objected. Every step of the way, Democrats have carried Iran’s water in Congress. Now when there seems to be ever more aggressive moves by Iran, Democrats come to the Iran’s defense.

Sen. Bernie Sanders said “The United States Congress must do everything it can to prevent the Trump administration’s attempts to put us on the brink of a catastrophic and unconstitutional war with Iran that could lead to even more deaths than the Iraq War.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) “We cannot let the Trump admin drag us into yet another war in the Middle East,” Warren went on to say “This is exactly why the president doesn’t have the constitutional authority to declare war. That’s Congress’s job—and that’s why I’m supporting this legislation to prevent a war with Iran.”

Sen. Warren went on to accuse the President of being inconsistent in his recent comments and military buildup and complained that no one can read his intentions regarding Iran. But that is exactly what Trump wants. President Trump is trying to pressure the Iranians into a better deal using the threat of force and uncertainty. It’s called the Art of the Deal.
