Kirsters Baish| It seems as though Iran isn’t too keen on the Trump White House. In fact, one of the top officials of the country has claimed that the United States is guilty of playing mind games with Iran, giving the fact that President Trump pulled out of the Iran Deal as evidence, also claiming that the Islamic Republic’s financial future may be at risk.
It was just a couple of years ago that Obama was in office, and we all know that he never dared to cross Iran.
This past Sunday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif sat down for an interview with Reuters. During the interview, he stated that the U.S. is guilty of committing “psychological warfare” on Iran.
“(America’s) focus is on a psychological war against Iran and its business partners,” he stated.
In an attempt to sound defiant he then said, “From the time that Trump announced the withdrawal from the nuclear deal, America has not been able to reach its goals.”
While Iran may be an aggressive country, things aren’t looking very good for them, as reported by Reuters.
“Iran’s parliament sacked the minister of economic affairs and finance on Sunday, state media said, amid a sharp fall in the rial currency and a deterioration in the economic situation,” Reuters explained. “The Iranian economy is dogged by high unemployment and the rial has lost half its value since April. The United States reimposed some sanctions in early August and a second set targeting Iran’s oil industry is due to take effect in November.”
The Trump White House’s decision to pull out of the messy Obama-era Iran Deal wasn’t the only thing that Iran has had thrown at them recently.
Since the end of 2017, the mullah’s regime has been seeing major problems thanks to the the failing economy.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani — mostly a figurehead when it comes to foreign affairs but who wields considerable power internally — has become increasingly hardline when it comes to the United States, although he has previously positioned himself as a pragmatist.
Earlier in the summer, Rouhani seemed to threaten the United States with war.
“Mr. Trump, don’t play with the lion’s tail, this would only lead to regret,” Rouhani stated. “America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars.”
He went on, “You are not in a position to incite the Iranian nation against Iran’s security and interests.” He seemed to be speaking on the Trump administration’s work to destabilize Iran.
Take into account that Zarif almost seemed to be going against Rouhani during his interview with Reuters, but the President was a little off.
Zarif explained, “There are some in the country who, instead of laying the groundwork for using the opportunities presented by the nuclear deal, chose a political fight. And this political fight led to despair and disappointment.”
Iran needs to realize that this is no longer the Obama era.
