President Trump Seeks “Regime Change” in Iran

Brett Hume: Trump “will not say” that he’s “attempting to overthrow the government or attempting to get regime change, but I think that’s exactly what this is all about.”

SANDRA SMITH (Media Matters, interviewer): What do you make of the escalating war of words between the U.S. and Iran?

BRIT HUME (FOX News senior political analyst): I think, Sandra, that it tells us a lot about what the administration thinks the condition — the internal political conditions in Iran are. The sanctions that the United States has imposed have discouraged other countries from doing business with Iran. Their economy is in very serious trouble, their currency has been drastically weakened, and there’d been demonstrations in the streets now, mounting over time. The regime is becoming increasingly unpopular. The administration will not say, Sandra, that it is attempting to overthrow the government or attempting to get regime change, but I think that’s exactly what this is all about. And when you heard [Secretary of State] Mike Pompeo’s description in that speech you showed a piece of, about the mafia-like behavior of leading powers in Iran and the fortunes they’ve accumulated and the rest of it, there’s no doubt in my mind that this is an effort to appeal to the Iranian people to say look, you need to throw off the yoke of this tyrannical government.

Regime change is in the works, expect the Iranian officials to come to the tables hobbled.

Have a terrific week.
