David Urban, corporate lobbyist and Trump's campaign strategist, joins Christiane Amanpour to give his analysis of the President's address to the nation after Iran's retaliatory airstrike on U.S. coalition air bases in Iraq. Mohammad Marandi, chair of American Studies at the University of Tehran, gives his view from Tehran; he assesses the proportionality of this strike as well as the rhetoric coming from the two leaders of the hostile nations. Antony Blinken, former U.S. Deputy National Security Adviser, discusses how President Trump has seemingly stepped back from further military confrontation whilst at the same time still fervently criticizing the Iran nuclear deal. Mina Al-Oraibi, editor-in-chief at The National, also weighs in about the impact this will have on the Persian Gulf states who are very dependent on America's military presence in the region. She unpacks Trump's desire for NATO to take on some of that burden. via Knit
