Dem Leaders Side With Iran as Trump Admin Seeks to Counter Terror Regime

Leading Democrats claim Trump 'itching for a confrontation with Iran'

Sen. Dick DurbinDemocratic congressional leaders held a press conference on Tuesday in which they sided with Iran in an increasingly tense standoff that has pitted the hardline Islamic regime against the Trump administration as it seeks to thwart Tehran's regional terror operations.
