With the current administration doing everything in its power to continue negotiations on reviving Iran’s nuclear power, everyone, including Hillary Clinton, is in opposition to what Biden is trying to do here.
The former Secretary of State expressed that the US shouldn’t be negotiating with Iran in any capacity at the moment. She added the timing just isn’t right, considering the people of Iran are finally standing up to the oppressive regime.

A couple of months back, on September 16th, several protests broke out across the middle-eastern country.
People began taking to the streets in almost 140 cities and 30 provinces, all of it in response to the death of a 22-year-old woman Mahsa Amni, who was put in custody for not following the strict dress code for females.

Brig. General Amirali Hajizadeh of the Revolutionary Guard Corps in the country reported around 300 people have been killed in the streets ever since the protests started; the numbers have continued to grow with each passing day.
Clinton claims the current situation in Iran deserves nothing short of our full support, adding every time someone should speak on behalf of the US government, they should also say they stand with the men, women, and children of this oppressed country.
Hillary was previously part of a group of female leaders that called for Iran to be kicked off the UN’s Status of Women Commission; she claims they never should have made it there in the first place.

The negotiations with no end in sight
Even though the Biden administration denounced the treatment of anti-regime protesters, they said nothing about pulling out of the negotiations, instead lying through their teeth about their support for the Iranian men and women who bravely stood up to the oppressor.
In late October, Special Envoy to Iran, Robert Malley, stated he will make no apology for doing everything in his power to prevent the country from acquiring nuclear weaponry.
This was quickly countered by Ned Price, who said the nuclear deal isn’t their focus at the moment.
This seems like quite a deceptive statement, considering that Biden is fighting tooth and nail to continue the negotiations, knowing full well the repercussions they would have on Iran’s suffering citizens.

What’s worse is the negotiations won’t see an end even if they were to continue. Iranians have shown time and time again that the nuclear weapons deal isn’t one they’re willing to risk taking.
It’s no surprise Biden is dedicating so much time and attention to an issue halfway across the globe, instead of dealing with the ones we’re facing here in America. It’s already clear the American people have never been his first priority.
However, the nuclear negotiations and his adamant stance on continuing them show he cares even less for the people of Iran and it’s nothing more than business to him, as always.
