12:04 pm
however republicans have just now started something like an economy perhaps a template in the campaign the economy and health care always issues that are elections health care that's a bread and butter issue for the democrats the republican failed to replace the affordable care act better known as obamacare health care a winner for democrats so what happened to immigration and gun truck this clue. trying to nationalize the immigration debate nationalize the going to be. immigration a biggie for the president racism the least racist person but the latest campaign ad posted on president trump's twitter account has sparked accusations of being blatantly racist politics anybody don't vote for the kind of your money for democrats trump is the gift that keeps on giving not only is the liberal democratic voter base fired up about going to the polls come november sixth. it's specifically

12:07 pm
seems very unlikely trump has a mound like photo ops. whereas the iranians are much more into behind the scenes negotiations and a slightly subtler approach to foreign policy it's hard to see how those two sides can and can square each other the other fact is that iran simply would consider it too much of a hit to its dignity to be pressured by the americans in such an aggressive manner intra pitch and the demands that the u.s. is making a pariah do amounts in that into a complete capitulation of the regime and it's hard to see how that will come to pass out he said that things are moving pretty five. because of directions in the middle east and the how some external factors will change the scenario. also what about the domestically will they sanctions have a political fallout for the government there
