Trump Ratchets Up the Maximum Pressure Campaign

by | Aug 17, 2020

Will Porter returns to FPF to discuss Trump’s maximum pressure policy against Iran and Venezuela. Will explains how the US seized four oil tankers that were carrying oil to Venezuela. Iran responded with a lack of concern saying the oil was no longer being carried by Iranian ships.

At the UN, the US pressed for a resolution that would have extended the arms embargo against Iran. The resolution failed with only two votes, the US and the Dominican Republic. Even US allies – France, UK, and Germany – refused to vote for the US resolution. Kyle and Will talk about how Iran is responding to Trump’s aggression. 

Kyle and Will announce the successor show to FPF, Conflicts of Interest. Will is becoming a full-time co-host, and the new show will include a video. Conflicts of Interest is set to launch on August 31st.
