Trump Goes On Rant Complaining That His Iran Stunt Is Not Distracting People From Impeachment
Donald Trump whined to reporters at the White House on Tuesday that his attacks on Iran have not gotten the coverage that he had hoped for. Not only that, but Trump also complained that people were still too focused on impeachment.
“It really is a shame that we can’t focus on all of the things,” Trump said about Iran and impeachment. “You know, we talked today about Iran, Iraq, economic development. We have the greatest stock market we’ve ever had in the history of our country. The greatest economy we’ve ever had in the history of our country. We’re setting records, unemployment records, employment records, we’re going to have almost 160 million people working. And we have to work on this partisan scam — is really a shame, that we have to take time is a shame. All right. That’s about it.”
Trump has had a history of attacking former President Barack Obama. In 2011 and 2012, Trump frequently tweeted that Obama would bomb Iran so he could win reelection. He also posted a video about it in 2011 saying that Obama had no ability to negotiate.
Polls are starting to look really bad for Obama. Looks like he'll have to start a war or major conflict to win. Don't put it past him!

I always said @BarackObama will attack Iran, in some form, prior to the election.

Don't let Obama play the Iran card in order to start a war in order to get elected–be careful Republicans!
