President Donald Trump started a fight with Iran by breaking the nuclear treaty, but now, it seems he's trying to fix what he's broken.


While in Japan over the weekend, Trump told the press he would be fine with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe serving as the mediator.

"That would be fine," Trump said when asked if he was open to Abe being the middle-man.

Trump's attempts at negotiating a deal are currently at a stand-still.

Slate staff writer Joshua Keating noted that any deal Trump makes with a country is likely to be broken or readjusted by any actual leaders that follow his administration.
