INUOn Monday, the Associated Press issued a brief report regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran’s initial response to last week’s inauguration of US President Donald Trump. The report indicated that Bahram Qasemi, the spokesperson for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, had withheld judgment of the new president, saying it was “too soon to assess him and analyze his remarks, stance and the framework of his viewpoints.”

Trump has the chance to correct a litany of mistakes of trying to appease the  Iranian regime. 

The Iranian Regime is in a fragile state following the death of former Iranian President Rafsanjani and the recent change in political ideology in the United States, according to an expert in middle eastern affairs.

Eric Schewe wrote on JStor Daily, that these “posed significant challenges to the 39-year old state”.

The end of the term of Hassan Rouhani, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, is coming to an end. As is Barack Obama’s eight year tenure. Many thought that by this stage the relations between Iran and the US would be civilised, peaceful and trusting. However this is not the case. 

In his article in The Hill, DR. Majid Sadeghpour, the political director of the Organization of Iranian American Communities in the U.S. (OIACUS), on January 17, he writes about the Congressional confirmation hearings that took place last week for nominees to the Trump cabinet. A clear image of the incoming administration’s policies is beginning to take shape, as these and other nominees are vetted and confirmed.
