11:04 am
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 guns trump is clearly trying to nationalize the immigration debate nationalize the gun debate. 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 their coffee or 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 white educated suburban women who voted for trump in two thousand and sixteen who now seem to be turning to the democrats i think i share the conventional wisdom that the democrats will regain the house of representatives that the republicans
11:05 am
will perhaps gain the seat or two in the senate no matter what the outcome on november sixth will be the twenty twenty presidential campaign has already started since as they say here in washington every election is always a referendum on the sitting president. iran's supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei has accused donald trump of disgracing the united states he also said the u.s. would be the ultimate loser over its decision to reimpose remaining sanctions on tehran following its withdrawal from the twenty fifth a nuclear deal the restrictions on jus to hit on monday aka having been lifted for the past three years the sanctions will impact iran's shipping financial and energy sectors. and we're joined now by eric randolph deputy bureau chief from the eye of pain news agency in tehran eric what impact will the section sanctions likely have on ordinary people in iran. this is a pretty significant economic downturn in iran as instructor announced today

walking out the deal back in may the current sea has lost something like seventy percent of its value that's driven up the price of imports that's hit businesses across the whole of society driving up prices ordinary people the government's been forced to see results of handing out food baskets of korra also so we've seen a lot of damage important to remember though it's not just sanctions causing those problems and some bad decisions in the banking sector and a lot of long time structural problems in the iranian economy also to blames so de wrong to say that this is just the u.s. pressure causing causing these problems a couple of things they have that sanctions definitely at hurting iran iranians there is is a run likely to sign another nuclear deal. show right now that seems very unlikely trampas amount like photo ops. whereas the iranians are
11:07 am
much more into buying the scenes negotiations and a slightly subtler approach to foreign policy it's hard to see how those two sides couldn't couldn't 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 the 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 fast in all of this if the russians and the middle east and the how some external factors will change the scenario also what about the domestically will the sanctions have a political fallout for the government there a lot of people really putting their faith in improving relations with the u.s. . yes that's right it's to talk about the impact of sanctions it's not just the
