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.
