Expert: Trump Needs Breakthrough With Iran for Reelection Expert: Trump Needs Breakthrough With Iran for Reelection

Donald Trump's offer of dialogue with Iran is more of a political "maneuver" than a fundamental change of approach, says a political analyst, who believes that the US president needs a breakthrough with Tehran to use as a springboard for reelection. 
"It seems unlikely that Trump has changed his stance toward Iran. He is in fact trying to maneuver," Rahman Qahremanpour also told ISNA in a recent interview. 
"Trump wants to achieve a breakthrough with Iran before the 2020 US presidential election so that he can tell Americans that he could gain more and better achievements than the previous US administration with Iran at a lower cost," he added. 
In late August, Trump told a news conference at the G7 Summit in Biarritz, France, that it was realistic to envisage a meeting with the Iranian head of government in the coming weeks to try to end a nuclear standoff. Both leaders are scheduled to attend the United Nations General Assembly this month.
