It also was surprisingly similar to the North American Free Trade Agreement that it replaced and which Trump has denounced ferociously for years.Trump enraged both Iran's leaders and public by summarily withdrawing from the nuclear agreement reached during Obama's presidency, calling it "the worst deal ever," and launching a campaign of "maximum pressure," largely in the form of financial war.The U.S. and Saudi Arabia have been pursuing an effective campaign to weaken Iran's grip on Iraq, most recently by securing the appointment of a new prime minister whom Iran tried but failed to block.Iran isn't going to be able to isolate Washington, no matter how frustrated Europeans become with Trump. And U.S. pressure on Iran isn't going to produce a major policy change, let alone regime change. So, unless both sides want a war, and neither side does, Iran and the U.S. will have to find a way to re-engage.First, the U.S. wants restraints on Iran's nuclear activities that don't expire in a few years, as they do in 10 to 15 years under the nuclear deal.So give Trump credit. His pressure on Iran seems to be working as planned so far.
