Donald Trump scrapped Iran nuclear deal ‘to spite Obama’ new leak claims.

Tensions between the United States and Iran has been high ever since President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal and accused the country of illegally enriching uranium.

President Donald Trump is accused of abandoning the Iran nuclear deal to spite his predecessor Barack Obama in another memo written by the UK’s former ambassador to the US that has leaked today.

The leaked memo written by Sir Kim Darroch, UK’s former ambassador to the US, reveals that Trump’s decision to scrap the Iran nuclear deal was meant to spite Obama. Sir Kim Darroch described the move as an act of ‘diplomatic vandalism’ in the memo leaked to the Mail on Sunday.

It says the memo was written after the then Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson appealed to the US in 2018 to stick with the nuclear deal.

This puts the focus back on Trump vs Obama rivalry with the former US President, in the past, having attacked the Republican over a number of issues. Even during the US Presidential campaign, Obama had lent his support to Hillary Clinton and had taken pot-shots at Trump.

However, this time around, the RSS wants the Modi government to not just think of “GDP centric development” but also take three of its major concerns into consideration – welfare of MSMEs, boycott Chinese products and consideration of environmental concerns.

Before you dismiss this as just another signature campaign, think again. A dedicated website by the name of – joinswadeshi.com – is already in place, a Google document collecting your name, mobile number, e-mail address and nationality is online where collection of digital signatures are afoot and most importantly, videos of influential persons like academicians, socio-religious organisations, MLAs, MPs will be circulated backing this campaign, through all platforms.

“To speed up the digital signature campaign, photographs and videos of the important persons of society like Vice Chancellors of universities, academicians, heads of various institutions, socio-religious organisations, MLAs, MPs etc while they participate in the campaign, may be given in newspapers and social media that will inspire the people to participate enthusiastically in the campaign,” reads a publicity goal by the Swadeshi Self Reliance Campaign under the aegis of Swadeshi Jagran Manch and overseen by a committee that has key functionaries from many RSS affiliates.

The thrust on technical and mobile efficient workers is because the SJM plans to catch the imagination of the young and old alike through every possible social media platform, some of them primarily frequented by the youngsters. So while traditional platforms like Facebook and Twitter will be used, the campaign isn”t averse to push the idea to more radical platforms like Quora where people primarily ask questions and get answered by absolute strangers.

Meanwhile, understanding that almost all smartphone users in India, which is estimated to reach 442 million by 2022, have WhatsApp installed, the campaign has dedicated a WhatsApp number for this purpose as well.

Sources say, such public opinion will “help the government” in framing policy that will not only protect domestic business in India at a time when the government itself wants the MSME sector to stand up on its feet after the lockdown but also help Modi”s vision of “self-reliant India”.

The goals listed by joinswadeshi.com are buy idegenous products and boycott especially Chinese products, become self employed and job creators as well as increase farmers” income, MSME and start ups through heavy reliance on new age technology. It also lists India”s global trade and transfer of technology giving precedence to what is in India”s interest rather than trade obligation as one key goal.

Finally, it says, the new vision of “self reliant” India will be considerate of environmental concerns like land grab, water depletion and worsening air quality rather than ignoring them.

It is unknown how much the government is in sync with the RSS economic wing”s version of “self reliant India” and the campaign there of, particularly boycotting Chinese products and be considerate of environmental concerns, but at the moment the BJP-led Centre is not complaining as most of the SJM”s non-specific goals are a reiteration of that of the government”s.
