Trump's Max Pressure Policy On Iran Unleashes Sophisticated Response | MTP Daily | MSNBC


    1. Dems and most rational Americans, want trump to stop ripping up treaties and backing out of commitments made by the United States, by people who better understand just about everything more than he does.

  1. tRump is driving the USA into a quagmire. It is mistake, after mistake, after mistake, a total military blunder. Is he doing it on purpose?

    1. @TheBase1aransas You are welcome, we are here helping drive their ratings up, it is a common effort. God bless your heart.

  2. It would seem like trump is pointing us to war but the TRUTH is–>there someone pulling his strings……

  3. For Iran to have attacked the saudi oil installation, those missiles would’ve had to fly over the Persian Gulf, and our U.S. Navy ships floating on it.
    Were they undetected? Attack missiles going right overhead, and NONE of our ships spotted them?


    2. The missiles were launched from Yemen not Iran dumbfuck.
      I suggest you look at a map and never vote.
      Because you’re clearly nothing but an ignorant ideologue.

  4. Looks like we should send over super rogue states-person Rudy Giuliani to the rescue!
    He can fly over seas on a presidential whim. Eats small birds with a single bite.
    Ousts ambassadors on tRumped up charges.
    It’s super Rudy G. He’ll get them Iranians in line and waist tax payer dollars doing it.

    1. Rudy is busy exposing Corruption world wide. And he’s just a small part of it. So are you and [MSNBC]

  5. The GOP establishment is pursuing another war for political purposes…they just want to stay in power and war is one way that they pay off their greed-addicted donor class. This is a repeating-pattern of policy behavior and the media should recognize it and call the GOP out for being so corrupt.

    1. Sorry ya think attacking a US embassy should go unchecked. Guess you’re alright with what happened at Benghazi

  6. 1:36 just to tell you, “THE SOUND VOLUME IS TOO LOW TO HEAR” ….. Do your jobs and fix AND CHECK the volume BEFORE BROADCAST.

  7. I believe a maximum pressure policy is what the winners of WWI tried on Germany. Look how that turned out.

    1. @Oedipus Flex nothing would have happened if US didnt break the nuclear agreement. Stop leaving that out

    2. @Oedipus Flex Trump could have tried to meet America’s obligations and stayed in the Iran Nuclear Deal. Since it is too late for that, Trump could get down on his knees and beg forgiveness from our former allies, and see if we can find a way to move forward. Trump simply does not have ability to do anything on his own, except to keep making a bad situation worse.

    3. @ruth depew One of the first things Trump did when elected, was to block the sale of enriched plutonium to Iran, agreed by Hilary and Obama, and to rip up their treaty with Iran, which would have allowed it to nuclearize.

    4. @ruth depew Iran are allies more with Russia than the US. It would have been disaterous if they’d become a nuclear power.

  8. MSNBC, stop pretending you understand these issues. Your defence to a recent defamation case, was that you weren’t a proper news channel, and so shouldn’t be held to the same standards as one. The court agreed. This is an important and complex matter, requiring serious journalists.

  9. Time for the left and the “experts” to somehow spin this into bad news of impending doom. Same way they claimed the economy would crash, moving the embassy would cause WW3, pulling out of the Paris accord would cause the sky to fall, blah blah blah. Trump 2020!

  10. People were frothing at the mouth when President Trump showed restraint after a drone was shot down. I hope the fine journalists at MSNBC aren’t TOO sad after the death of Iranian General Qassim Soleimani.

    1. JarOfRats Soleimani was the equivalent of the Iranian CIA and Special Forces leader. Good shot!!!
      Prayers for protection and wisdom for our brave!
      Alert Brigade!!! Thank you!!!!

  11. Hadi al Amiri, a militia leader identified as one of the organizers of this week’s attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, met with President Barack Obama in the White House in 2011.

    Al Amiri joined a delegation consisting of several top advisers including Iraqi PM Nouri al-Maliki for the meeting with the former President inside the oval office.
