Fact Check: Assessing Trump’s Criticisms of Iran and the Nuclear Deal

“Any attempt to renege or decertify or impose sanctions again has a tremendously negative impact on the current moderates in Iran” who support Mr. Rouhani and, in turn, would fuel hard-liners, Mr. Amanat said.Mr. Trump misled about the deal’s “immediate financial boost” to Iran.Mr. Trump claimed that the deal gave Iran “over $100 billion its government could use to fund terrorism” and a “massive cash settlement of $1.7 billion.” The diplomatic agreement did not cut Iran a check, but it did release about $100 billion in previously Iranian frozen assets. Much of the amount is tied up in debt obligations. For example, $20 billion is owed to China for financing projects in Iran. Estimates for the actual amount available to Iran range from $35 billion to $65 billion.The Obama administration did transfer $1.7 billion to Iran, but Mr. Trump’s statement requires more context. The money — delivered in cash, some on a plane — was payment for a decades-long dispute and was indirectly linked to the nuclear deal.Before the 1979 revolution, Iran’s shah had paid $400 million for American military goods but, after he was overthrown, they were never delivered […]

Stephen Curry, on a ‘Surreal Day,’ Confronts a Presidential Snub

As a player and as a coach, Kerr has visited the White House on several occasions. And despite his well-publicized criticism of the current administration, Kerr said in June that he was open to the idea of the Warriors’ visiting the White House as something of a unifying gesture.“I think we would, in normal times, easily be able to set aside political views, and go visit and have a great time,” Kerr said Saturday. “But these are not ordinary times. Probably the most divisive times in my life, I guess, since Vietnam, when I was just a kid.”He added, “The president made it really, really difficult for us to honor that institution.”On Friday, at the team’s annual media day ahead of the start of training camp, Curry said that the Warriors had not decided as a team whether they would visit the White House and that they planned to talk about it at a meeting. But Curry said that if it were up to him, he would not go. That seemed to be the consensus among the players.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred. […]

White House Weighs Lowering Refugee Quota to Below 50,000

No final decision has been made, according to the officials, but as the issue is being debated, the Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed the administration to bar almost any refugees from entering the country while it considers challenges to the travel ban order. The court will hear arguments in the case next month.A Historically Low Cap on Refugees May Fall FurtherPresident Trump is considering lowering the cap on refugees admitted to the United States to less than 50,000 for the 2018 fiscal year, down from the 110,000 cap set by President Barack Obama before he left office.

News Analysis: Why Trump, After North Korea’s Blast, Aimed His Sharpest Fire at the South

Thus, what was supposed to be a calm holiday weekend dissolved into jitters over a dual threat: the specter of nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula, and the possibility of an economic standoff among world powers, as Mr. Trump considers walking away from a major trade agreement with South Korea as early as this week.Administration officials said Mr. Trump’s attack-on-all-fronts approach was necessary to keep the pressure on adversaries and allies alike. But outside observers saw a danger in Mr. Trump’s efforts to fulfill a core populist campaign promise on trade even as he tried to use the issue as leverage on security matters.“In a circumstance where we’re going to need close cooperation with not only South Korea but China as well, he’s coming out swinging at all of them rather than trying to build support and coordination,” said Ely Ratner, a top national security official in the Obama administration. “It just looks so haphazard.”Still, Mr. Ratner said North Korea’s latest nuclear test could finally spur China, which views nuclear tests as far more serious than the North’s series of ballistic missile launches, to undertake a more serious crackdown on its neighbor.“I think the nuclear test has a chance of pushing China into a place it’s never been before,” Mr. Ratner said.In a salvo of Twitter messages over six hours on Sunday, Mr. Trump called North Korea’s biggest nuclear test to date “very hostile and dangerous.” In invoking South Korean “appeasement,” he criticized Seoul’s proposal to hold military talks with the North, saying of Pyongyang, “they only understand one thing” — meaning the threat of military force.The Treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, said that he planned to draft a new sanctions package that would cut economic ties with anyone who did business with North Korea.Continue reading the main story“There’s a lot we can do to cut them off economically, much more than we’ve done,” Mr […]

Forceful Chief of Staff Grates on Trump, and the Feeling Is Mutual

“Ultimately Donald Trump is his own man, and he’s going to resist all the control and regimented systems Kelly is trying to impose,” Mr. Stone said.For the seven months of the Trump administration, the favorite parlor game in the West Wing has been guessing how long imperiled aides like Mr. Priebus would hang on before getting fired. But these days it is Mr. Kelly’s state of mind, not Mr. Trump’s, that concerns the beleaguered aides buoyed by the new chief’s imposition of structure and clear lines of authority.The question now is how long Mr. Kelly will stay, with estimates ranging from a month to a year at the most. White House officials say that Mr. Kelly has given no indication he intends to leave anytime soon. He has thrown himself into long-term planning of the administration’s tax reform push, the president’s Asia trip in November and scheduling for the next several months, they said […]

Trump Promises ‘100 Percent’ Support to Storm-Battered South

“It has nothing to do with it, really,” Mr. Trump said. “I think this is separate.”Still, he reiterated his shutdown threat, although he said, “I hope that’s not necessary.” He also insisted that Mexico would ultimately pay for the border wall, a prospect officials there have repeatedly rejected.VideoTrump Defends Pardoning Sheriff ArpaioIn a joint news conference with the president of Finland, President Trump defended his controversial pardoning of the former Arizona sheriff, Joe Arpaio.By THE NEW YORK TIMES on Publish Date August 28, 2017.Photo by Al Drago for The New York Times.Watch in Times Video »embed “One way or another, Mexico will pay for the wall,” Mr. Trump said, adding, “It may be through reimbursement.”Mr. Trump also mounted a vigorous defense of his decision last week to pardon Joe Arpaio, the former Arizona sheriff convicted of criminal contempt for his tactics in hunting down and jailing undocumented immigrants.“A lot of people think it was the right thing to do,” Mr. Trump said, claiming that he had timed the announcement on a Friday night while Harvey was bearing down on Texas to maximize attention to the decision.“I assumed the ratings would be far higher than they would be normally,” Mr. Trump said.He rattled off a prepared list of people Democratic presidents had pardoned before him, including Bill Clinton’s pardoning of Marc Rich and Barack Obama’s commutation of Chelsea Manning’s sentence.“I stand by my pardon of Sheriff Joe,” Mr. […]

Trump’s Threats on Health Law Hide an Upside: Gains Made by Some Insurers

“Outside of the noise,” the surviving companies “are seeing a path forward in this marketplace,” said Deep Banerjee, an analyst with Standard & Poor’s who has examined the financial results of more than two dozen Blue Cross insurers.“It is still a new market,” he added, “and everyone is adjusting to it.”The healthier business outlook has been achieved at a big cost to consumers. To stanch their losses, many companies raised their prices substantially for this year while narrowing their networks of providers to hold down costs. In Phoenix, for example, a typical plan’s monthly premiums more than doubled. Although people with incomes low enough to qualify for federal subsidies were shielded from the brunt of the steep increases, the higher prices prompted Republicans to blame the law for plans that were out of many people’s reach.In some cases, companies will seek even higher rates for 2018; the lone insurer left in Iowa is asking for a nearly 60 percent increase, on average.Insurers have remained largely silent during the heated debate over the law’s future, hoping not to antagonize the Trump administration as it decides whether to continue paying the subsidies. The companies, which were vilified by proponents of the Affordable Care Act before it was enacted, are concerned that Mr. […]
