Posted on 09/12/2019 5:40:44 AM PDT by GIdget2004
President Donald Trump has left the impression with foreign officials, members of his administration, and others involved in Iranian negotiations that he is actively considering a French plan to extend a $15 billion credit line to the Iranians if Tehran comes back into compliance with the Obama-era nuclear deal.
Trump has in recent weeks shown openness to entertaining President Emmanuel Macrons plan, according to four sources with knowledge of Trumps conversations with the French leader. Two of those sources said that State Department officials, including Secretary Mike Pompeo, are also open to weighing the French proposal, in which the Paris government would effectively ease the economic sanctions regime that the Trump administration has applied on Tehran for more than a year.
The deal put forward by France would compensate Iran for oil sales disrupted by American sanctions. A large portion of Irans economy relies on cash from oil sales. Most of that money is frozen in bank accounts across the globe. The $15 billion credit line would be guaranteed by Iranian oil. In exchange for the cash, Iran would have to come back into compliance with the nuclear accord it signed with the worlds major powers in 2015. Tehran would also have to agree not to threaten the security of the Persian Gulf or to impede maritime navigation in the area. Lastly, Tehran would have to commit to regional Middle East talks in the future.

Oh hell no. A thousand times NO.
“According to sources” always means these days, wait to find out if this is BS made to drive support away.
Also it’s the Daily Beast.
So basically paying them to return to an agreement we walked away from as not enough to begin with. Good plan. </sarcasm>
This is bullsheet—no way he does this. He is playing them again.
I’ll only believe this if it’s coming from BuzzFeed.
Mr. Sources sure is a talkative person. He’s referenced in just about every news story.
Butt hole, Daily Beast. the difference between Trump and the Democrat Party and yourselves, is that Trumpie is a master chess player and the Dems & you are still kids learning how to play checkers...LMAO!!! Beat it, Deadbeats!!!
He is not considering this.
Surely it is a Master Troll.
I’ll only believe this if Buzzfeed reports on it and CNN confirms it.
Calm down. Look at the source. And remember President Trump says things purposefully to tweak the media as well as make them think he’s doing something wait a few days and he will say that he did research and they are actually the opposite. What he’s does matters not what he says.
I gotta believe President Trump is too smart for that. Has to be a negotiating tactic - offer them a little hope, then slam the hammer down on them.
From the Daily Hildabeast....unlikely
So.... $15 billion to comply with an Obama deal that was one of the worst ever?
It’s not our money...and we don’t need to be policing the area anyway. Trump is basically “listening” but the media making it sound like he’s thinking of doing it.
“Sources Say” = We Made Up And Are Lying To Divide President Trump’s base.
Keep in mind this from a web site that has Chelsea Clinton on their board.
Looks like the latest tactic from the Globalist is to say President Trump is for things he is not for like nuclear bombs in hurricane. Total B.S. that was pushed for over a week.
Now they say George Soros supports Trump. Total B.S.
That is the game here. They are trying to hurt President Trump’s base by saying he is for things that he is not.
Daily Beast = Fake News
What’s with the sexual reference?
