Bromance brewing? Trump is sure Iran’s Rouhani is ‘a lovely man’

RT – Despite the Trump administration’s hawkish rhetoric aimed at Tehran, the US president apparently thinks that Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani is a “lovely man” – and even hinted that the two could meet in the future.

“Despite requests, I have no plans to meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Maybe someday in the future. I am sure he is an absolutely lovely man!” Trump tweeted on Tuesday.

The tweet’s friendly tone contrasts sharply with the Trump administration’s hostile posturing towards Iran – a tweet-tactic that Trump also employed with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. After lobbing numerous insults at Kim and openly threatening Pyongyang, Trump declared in May that he would be “honored” to meet with the North Korean leader. Overnight, Kim went from “Little Rocket Man” to a “smart cookie.” The pair later met at a historic summit in Singapore in June.
