Considering the fact that he withdrew the U.S. from the Nuclear Arms Treaty created by Obama, the Iranians likely now have less concern about starting a cottage nuclear industry.
Trump has recently said that his policies and actions have, unlike those of Obama, caused the Iranians to “fear him.” If the word fear is used in its nominative sense this is probably true. However if it is used as a verb it is more likely applicable to the American public, as well as the democracies of the world. Their concern is a conditioned response to the news confirmed by FACT CHECK on December 10, 2019, that Trump is credited with 15,413 false or misleading claims since taking office. You have much better odds putting your money down on number 34 on a roulette wheel.
I’m not too sure that the Iranians exactly “fear” him. On the other hand, I am damned sure that legions of American people do, including a considerable number of elected GOPers; but their anxieties have more to do with a paycheck than with the well being of the nation.
Meanwhile Trump, wearied by his efforts, has spent one out of every three of his days in office (242 times), playing golf. On the links, he is known to caddies far and wide by the moniker Pele! Of course the American public foots the bill (including the cost of Secret Service, Air Force One and limos--$588 million to date) for his travels and payments to mostly his own properties, including $3.4 million to Mar A Lago alone. One should keep in mind that one of the many trumped up attacks on Obama was the rebuke of his golf outings.
