Trump’s Toxic Tweets Show Chaos In White House; Iran Says They Will “React Appropriately” To Trump’s Sanctioning Threats

President Trump continues to lash out and criticize members of his own political party and cabinet over political matters he disagrees with and his latest targets have been Tennessee Republican Senator Bob Corker and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson which comes ahead of an important foreign policy decision that he will soon make about how the U.S. will handle Iran over its ballistic missile program.

After criticizing his predecessor Barack Obama over his past dealings in the Middle East and speaking recently about renewing sanctions on Tehran and decertifying the U.S. from its past involvement in a historic July 2015 nuclear accord with other five other world powers that relieved Iran from international sanctions, President Trump criticized Sen. Corker on Twitter over his past role with the nuclear accord.

President Trump is expected to make an announcement in the coming days about how the U.S. will respond to Iran concerning its missile program.

On Wednesday Sen. Corker criticized President Trump in comments to reporters when he said that people in Trump’s own cabinet, including General John Kelly, General James Mattis, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson are people who separate our country from chaos.

During a White House press briefing on Friday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said, “I think that the President is the one that’s keeping the world from chaos.”

President Trump fired back and tweeted on Sunday, “Bob Corker gave us the Iran Deal, & that’s about it. We need HealthCare, we need Tax Cuts/Reform, we need people that can get the job done!”

President Trump later tweeted a triple tweet on Sunday claiming that Sen. Bob Corker, who is also the Chairman of the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, had “begged” him for an endorsement for reelection in Tennessee and maintained that after he refused to endorse Sen. Corker, he dropped out and said that he can’t win without his endorsement.

President Trump blamed Sen. Corker in his tweet for the “horrendous” Iran deal.

“Senator Bob Corker ‘begged’ me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said ‘NO’ and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement). He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said ‘NO THANKS.’ He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal! Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda. Didn’t have the guts to run!” Trump tweeted.

Sen. Bob Corker responded with a Sunday tweet suggesting the White House has become an “adult day care center” and said that someone obviously missed their shift this morning.

Sen. Corker tweeted, “It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”

Iran ‘s Nuclear Accord And Ballistic Missile Program 

In mid-July 2015 the U.S. joined China, France, Great Britain, Germany, and Russia working out a historic nuclear accord with Iran that greatly curtailed its nuclear program by reducing its uranium stockpile by 98 percent and keeping its level of uranium enrichment at 3.67 percent, dramatically below the enrichment level needed to create a bomb, in exchange for relieving $100 billion in sanctioned Iranian assets that were previously frozen.

A Reuters article on October 6th cited an undisclosed Iranian source and western officials who said that during their meeting on the sidelines of a UN General Assembly meeting last month, Iran had told six world powers that it could discuss its missile program to remove concerns, but Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs responded over the week-end by objecting to the Reuters article and denied claims about Tehran’s readiness to hold talks over aspects of its missile program which they referred to as a “defensive missile program.”

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said in a statement on Friday that Iran believes its missile defense program is an “absolute right” and stressed the non-negotiability of its defensive program which he said isn’t in contradiction with UN Security Council Resolution 2231 that was approved following Iran’s 2015 historic nuclear accord.

UN Security Council Resolution 2231 requires Iran not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology, and approves on a case by case basis the “supply, sale or transfer directly or indirectly from their territories of ballistic missiles” in addition to the “provision to Iran of any technology or technical assistance or training, financial assistance, investment, brokering or other services, and the transfer of financial resources or services, or Iran’s acquisition of an interest in any commercial activity in another State.”

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif said on Sunday that Iran will “react appropriately” to President Trump’s position on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) that was carried out under the historic 2015 nuclear accord, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency, which also cited Iran’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN Gholamali Khoshroo who questioned President Trump’s ability to certify the Iran nuclear deal on Sunday and said the sole compliance authority rests with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

President Trump has been skeptical of international agreements involving the U.S. and has used insular reasoning to isolate the U.S. from treaties, ranging from the Paris Climate Accord, and the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).

He has also spoken out about renegotiating NAFTA.

Talking Tough About North Korea While Chiding His Own Secretary Of State On Twitter

After U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met with Chinese officials in late September and advocated for diplomacy with North Korea, President Trump tweeted a message on October 1st that appeared to contradict the softer sentiment of his Secretary of State.

“I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man. Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done! Being nice to Rocket Man hasn’t worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won’t fail” Trump tweeted.
