The loose timeline of events:

  • 2018.05.08 Trump pulls out of embarrassingly bad and unratified Iran Nuclear deal (JCPOA, unilaterally invented by Obama in 2015.07.14), and created a list of 12 demands to fix or the Obama lifted sanctions will go back into effect on 2018.08.08.[1] Iran ignores, sanctions go into effect (airplanes, caviar, gold, carpets, cars and pistachios).

In every one of these, the Democrats and their media take Iran's side over the President and American interests and claim Trump is rushing us into war by trying all other alternatives and waiting a few years before finally attacking back. I'd ask whose side are they on, but we all know. Right? Sure, Iran was committing terrorism and murder, but Orangeman is badder!
