IRAN/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The bottom line is that Iran is closer to a nuclear bomb today than it was when Donald Trump took office. And Trump has no answer for that. Five years ago, even Russia and China stood with our European allies behind an American-led approach to Iran’s nuclear program.

Now, America stands alone. Trump’s policies have pushed Russia and China closer to Iran, while reducing transatlantic relations to their lowest point in decades.”

-Joe Biden, “There’s a smarter way to be tough on Iran,” cnn.com, Sep. 13, 2020
