The confluence of events will test Trump’s weak appetite for military action, his ability to rally allies he has frequently snubbed and his seriousness about actually striking the better deal with the Iranians that he once promised. https://t.co/6MbcJvC7am

Outstanding, timely @MaxBoot piece on #Trump foreign policy – and a 2016 letter that proved prophetic – "he would use the authority of his office to act in ways that make America less safe, and which would diminish our standing in the world.” https://t.co/FyJPbMw41p

Iran is essentially threatening to shorten its timeline to develop a nuclear weapon, an outcome President Trump has said he'd take military action to prevent. Here's what you need to know. https://t.co/o0kHAsKqGO

Trump's "maximum pressure" campaign was supposed to induce Iran to scrap its nuclear program (which was already contained by the 2015 nuclear deal). Instead, Trump's actions have incentivized Iran e to restart it, creating a completely unnecessary crisis. https://t.co/YgTfFabiJ7

Al Jazeera presenter Mehdi Hasan on Gulf tanker attacks:
“Even if it turns out Iran was behind these attacks – just goes to show pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal was the disaster a lot of us said it would be when Donald Trump did it”#PoliticsLivehttps://t.co/um7gGIYmoA pic.twitter.com/QHfjbfqISs

Donald Trump doesn’t normally talk to journalists who won’t indulge his cult of personality. His big ABC interview with George Stephanopoulos showed why. https://t.co/bzfUAKXXWF

Horrendous beyond words. It's straight out of Kazuo Ishiguro's terrifying novel Never Let Me Go. Or another hideous scenario from Years and Years.

The risk aversion of @BorisJohnson is something to behold. Every other Tory candidate is taking questions from newspapers, TV and radio in a 4th estate or “lobby” hustings. The only one who has refused such scrutiny is the one who still makes a living writing for @Telegraph.

First hustings completed.
As the odds show – the public’s view is cementing.@BorisJohnson vs @RoryStewartUK would produce a truly riveting contest that would help improve our brand & would be followed not just by the Party faithful but a country we must urgently re-engage with. pic.twitter.com/RJUV32R8zR

Despair at the charlatan @BorisJohnson ever being PM fuels the unlikely rise of @RoryStewartUK as a credible Tory Leadership contender. But don’t be fooled – he is as Tory establishment as they come, wants to deliver #Brexit & hates modern , outward looking Scotish democracy.
