Canada cut a free trade deal. Ditto Mexico. Ditto South Korea. Red China will at Mar-A-Lago, the president just announced.
North Korea cut a peace deal. Kim Jong Un hit the rails and headed to Vietnam this weekend. (Sadly, not on the Seoul Train.)
Iran may be next because its economy is collapsing thanks to President Donald Trump's trade sanctions.
"As Iran marked the 40th anniversary of its Islamic Revolution, a white-turbaned Shiite cleric at one commemoration targeted President Hassan Rouhani, a fellow clergyman, with this sign: 'You who are the cause of inflation; we hope you won't last until spring,'" the Associated Press reported.
"Already lashed by criticism over his collapsing nuclear deal and renewed tensions with the U.S., the relatively moderate Rouhani faces anger from clerics, hard-line forces and an ever-growing disaffected public that now threatens his position.
"Iranian presidents typically see their popularity erode during their second four-year terms, but analysts say Rouhani is particularly vulnerable because of the economic crisis assailing the country's rial currency, which has hurt ordinary Iranians and emboldened critics to openly call for his ouster.
"Though such a move only has happened once in the Islamic Republic's four-decade history, the popular discontent heard on streets throughout Iran now could make it possible."
To be sure, in June there were plenty of protests that failed to ignite a revolution.
But President Trump tore up the Obama Nukes For Iran deal, which means problems continue for this regime. They ain't dealing with Obama no more.
"It's been a long fall for Rouhani, who secured the 2015 nuclear deal after two years in office and won the praise of Iranians, who flooded the streets to celebrate it. Under the deal, Iran limited its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions," AP reported.
"But the benefits of the deal never reached much of the Iranian public. Even before President Donald Trump pulled America from the accord in May, uncertainty over its future caused the rial to crater, fueling sporadic, nationwide protests.
"Now the rial is dropping again, down to 133,000 to $1. It had been 32,000 to the dollar at the time of the deal. On social media, hard-liners share price lists showing food staples like beans, rice and tomato paste rising as much as 238 percent."
President Trump understands how the world works. The people in Washington understand how Washington works.
On August 7, President Donald John Trump tweeted, "The Iran sanctions have officially been cast. These are the most biting sanctions ever imposed, and in November they ratchet up to yet another level. Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States. I am asking for WORLD PEACE, nothing less!"
The tweet got scant attention in the press. I noted it. He has a strategy known only to him. It is working.
America has military might. The last four presidents tapped into that.
But American economic might is better for this situation.
Kim Jong Un is chugging to Vietnam to meet President Trump. Kim wants a McDonald's. By that I mean he wants to rule a normal country. He will get one for his nukes.
Rouhani can get a normal country as well. He must give up his terrorism.
If not, the next man up will.
