Iran will resist Trump’s ‘psychological warfare’: senior Guards commander to ISNA

Published

on

Overnight threats by President Donald Trump against Iran amount to “psychological warfare”, and Tehran will continue to resists its enemies, a senior commander of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards was quoted as saying on Monday.

“We will never abandon our revolutionary beliefs … we will resist pressure from enemies… America wants nothing less than (to) destroy Iran … (but) Trump cannot do a damn thing against Iran,” Iranian Students News Agency ISNA reported. Gholamhossein Gheybparvar as saying.

Trump told President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday to stop threatening the United States or face the consequences, hours after Rouhani told Trump that hostile policies toward Tehran could lead to “the mother of all wars.” (Writing by Parisa Hafezi; editing by John Stonestreet)

CBS cuts off ugly interview with Liz Cheney after she attacks host for asking about Trump’s racism

Published

on

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) accused CBS host Margaret Brennan of unfairly bringing race into a discussion after President Donald Trump told four non-white Democratic congresswomen to "go back" to where they came from.

In an interview on Face the Nation, Brennan asked Cheney if it was appropriate for Trump supporters to chant "send her back" at a rally in North Carolina last week.

"The news media wants to make this about race -- you just did it," Cheney told Brennan. "It’s not about race, gender, religion... As Republicans we will fight against those even if the mainstream media accuses us of racism when we do this."

Published

CNN contributor Rick Santorum ran into some fierce resistance on Sunday morning when he attempted to defend the explicit racism in Donald Trump's tweets at Democratic lawmakers -- with the only other conservative on the panel blowing up on him.

Speaking with fill-in host Dana Bash, the former GOP Senator from Pennsylvania was right away on the defensive when asked about the president's tweets and the resulting "send her back" chant at a rally in North Carolina.

"He says things to bring attention to these issues and I know it's hair on fire time for everyone on the left," Santorum offered in Trump's defense, which brought a sharp comeback from fellow conservative CNN commentator S.E. Cupp.

White House flack: Trump made it clear he ‘disagrees with’ and ‘stands with’ people who chanted ‘send her back’

White House spokesperson Mercedes Schlapp on Sunday insisted that President Donald Trump "stands with" people who chanted a racist slogan at his rally last week -- although she also claimed that he disagrees with the chant itself.

In an interview on ABC's This Week, host George Stephanopoulos asked Schlapp why Trump let the racist "send her back" chant go on for 13 seconds after he attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

"He is not a racist," Schlapp said of the president. "He's a compassionate man whose policies have focused on the minority community."

"You also saw him in that room in North Carolina -- 13 seconds as the crowd chanted 'send her back,'" Stephanopoulos pointed out. "It seems like you're at odds with the president, you had a different reaction to that chant."
