Trump Says 'Lot Of Progress' With Iran On Missiles Despite Denials From Tehran

U.S. President Donald Trump says "a lot of progress" has been made toward ending a tense standoff with Iran, even as tough language continues to be exchanged between the two sides.

"A lot of progress has been made. We'll see what happens. But a lot of progress has been made," Trump told a cabinet meeting on July 16, referring to Washington's efforts to persuade Tehran to negotiate over its missile program.

Trump's remarks echoed those made by his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, who told the cabinet that Iran had signaled a readiness to negotiate with Washington on the matter.

"The Iranian regime is struggling to figure out what they're going to do with their economy because we've been terribly effective," Pompeo said.

"And the result is...frankly, I think it was yesterday, maybe the day before, for the first time the Iranians have said that they're prepared to negotiate about their missile program. So we will have this opportunity, I hope, if we continue to execute our strategy appropriately, we'll have this opportunity to negotiate a deal that will actually prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon."

1. Color me not surprised you'd fall for Iran's negotiating bluster. It's nuclear blackmail

no matter how you look at it.

2. I hope they are stalling for time and quickly getting ready to test their first bomb.

It is in their own national security interest to have the "bomb", indeed.
