Last week, after condemning mainstream reporting on the tensions between the United States and Iran, US President Donald Trump added that the resulting confusion over the nature of those tensions could be a good thing.

Following weeks of escalating tensions between Iran and the US, President Donald Trump elaborated upon prior reassurances on Monday, when he said that his administration is “not looking for regime change.” Of course, Trump’s own perspective on the future of American relations with the Islamic Republic is generally recognized to be somewhat at odds with that of his leading foreign policy advisors, including National Security Advisor John Bolton, who has openly advocated for regime change and has repeatedly endorsed the efforts being made toward that end by Iran’s leading democratic opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran.

INU - Last year, the U.S. State Department announced that it would be expecting all foreign countries to reduce their imports of Iranian oil to zero.
