Amid tough talk, Trump says he could be Iran's 'best friend'

Amid tough talk, Trump says he could be Iran's 'best friend'President Donald Trump said Saturday that military action against Iran was still an option for its downing of an unmanned U.S. military aircraft, but amid heightened tensions he dangled the prospect of eventually becoming an unlikely “best friend” of America’s longtime Middle Eastern adversary. Trump also said “we very much appreciate” that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard chose not to target a U.S. spy plane carrying more than 30 people. The president’s softer tone Saturday marked a stark contrast to the anti-Iran rhetoric he employed throughout the presidential campaign and presidency, including his use of punishing economic sanctions in an attempt to pressure Iran to give up its quest to build nuclear weapons.

Kirstjen Nielsen: 'Extreme' immigration enforcer not tough enough for Trump

Kirstjen Nielsen: 'Extreme' immigration enforcer not tough enough for TrumpKirstjen Nielsen, the US homeland security chief whose departure was announced by Donald Trump on Sunday, was said to be a frequent target of the president’s ire despite being among the staunchest defenders of his controversial immigration policies. Last summer, as images were broadcast of wailing children being wrested from their parents under the administration’s practice of separating families, she took to the White House podium to defend the “zero tolerance” approach, becoming the face of a policy that was decried the world over. As Border Patrol estimates put the number of migrants passing through Mexico at over 100,000 in March — nearly a decade high — an increasingly irate Trump appeared to have lost patience with Nielsen, who had been without her protector John Kelly, the former White House chief of staff, since he resigned last year.
