This essay examines the relations between the United States and Iran under the Donald Trump Administration. It finds that, rhetoric aside, less tense and less confrontational ties between these nations may be possible. A key reason for this possibility is that the Republic of Iran enjoys tremendous economic and strategic assets of potential interest to the United States. The essay also examines the fast-growing relations between Tehran and Asian and European powers.
