Donald Trump’s ignorance of world affairs combined with the presence at his side of Iran-obsessed ideologues such as John Bolton and Mike Pompeo have put the deal – one of the biggest achievements of US diplomacy this century – in real jeopardy.
In any earlier Presidential election, Joe Biden could have been squelched by age, neck-nuzzling or the Anita Hill thing. This time around, he has a good chance of surmounting all of the above, simply because of The Donald.
It’s important that Trump does not have a second term. But it would be infinitely better to have him rejected by the people at the ballot box.
