This is a US president who simply can't negotiate effectively with other countries and world leaders

Here’s the crux of Trump’s problem with Iran. He, on the one hand is happy to build up tensions with Iran so that just before his 2020 election campaign he can fake the news again and claim that he saved America from a war there; on the other hand he has John Bolton who is absolutely busting to get a war going with Iran but who is absurdly out of touch with a few military realities like the cost of human life to both US servicemen and the destruction of Israel by Hezbollah.
The real dilemma for Trump if he is to allow such madness to go ahead is that America would probably go it alone if it were to strike Iran. The big difference between the Iraq war in 2003 and what’s happening today is that Trump has no international allies to support the plan as none is buying the bullshit.
