Tensions have been simmering since Trump’s election, with the travel ban affecting many in Iran. Tell us about your views on the US president
During his campaign for presidency, Donald Trump said his predecessor Barack Obama had been “too soft” on Iran. He was critical of the nuclear deal made between Iran and the world’s six major powers, including the US.
Since his election tensions have grown. Trump has attempted to bar Iranians from entering the US (as part of a wider travel ban on people from predominantly Muslim countries) and has also talked about putting Iran “on notice” after it tested a ballistic missile.
The travel restrictions are going to affect Asghar Farhadi, the award-winning Iranian director whose new film The Salesman has earned him a nomination for a second Oscar. The supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has urged Iranians to join a rally on Friday – the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution – to show “their position toward threats.”
