Trump’s “Multipronged Attack Against Iran” Ramps Up with New Sanctions, Possible Bombing Plans

President-elect Joe Biden has said he will rejoin the Iran nuclear deal once in office, but his attempts at reviving diplomatic relations between the United States and Iran could be complicated by President Donald Trump, who is reportedly considering bombing Iran’s main nuclear site in the final weeks of his presidency.

The New York Times reports Trump’s advisers have attempted to dissuade the president, warning that a strike could escalate into a broader conflict, but officials tell the newspaper that Trump may still be looking for ways to attack Iran or Iranian assets.

DN speaks with Narges Bajoghli, professor of Middle East studies at Johns Hopkins University.
