1:24 am
a comment he says president obama charm as disgraced the yes forty years of washington trying to dominate iran have failed same bus rafi reports now from tehran. when you look past all the politics what becomes clear is that american sanctions iranian people more than they change iranian government policies american policy some would say trumps brinkmanship has meant economic chaos for iran the value of the iranian ryall has suffered a major fall in the last year adding to high inflation and unemployment concerns. all of this hurts low income and working people first and foremost they struggle to feed their families because prices for some basic goods have doubled. people's purchasing power has been reduced they talk about their problems when a customer wants to buy something you can tell the situation some people used to come here to buy meat once

1:26 am
he's the one that should be the president of america. maybe good for his own people but not for us as you do think. it's better not to say anything about his personality everyone knows how. everybody will take a loss. when iran's leaders signed the nuclear deal they said it was the thing to fix everyone's financial problems three years later with american promises of more sanctions than ever before the best that people here can hope for is that iran can manage to sell enough oil to survive until donald trump has left the white house. protesters have rallied in india's capital demanding justice for the families of those killed during the one nine hundred eighty four and t c gras it's around three thousand people were killed in retaliation for the assassination of the prime minister at the time indira gandhi she was killed by her sikh bodyguards who were
