Giuliani: Trump is ‘committed to’ regime change in Iran
Rudy Giuliani pushed for regime change in Iran on Saturday, saying President Donald Trump is “as committed to regime change as we are.”
It’s “the only way to peace in the Middle East” and “more important than an Israeli-Palestinian deal,” Trump’s newest attorney in the ongoing Russia probe and former mayor of New York City told reporters after giving a speech to the Iran Freedom Convention for Democracy and Human Rights in Washington.

The speech was hosted by the Organization of Iranian-American Communities, a group that aims to promote democracy in the Islamic Republic and was supportive of the December protests there.
At one point in his speech, Giuliani, who has served as an informal adviser to Trump and had been under consideration to be his secretary of state, pretended that his notes were the Iran nuclear deal, ripping them up and spitting on them.
The White House is considering the future of the Iran nuclear agreement struck between Iran and Obama administration, five other countries and the European Union.
During the December protests in the country, Trump tweeted that it was “TIME FOR CHANGE!,” adding “the great Iranian people have been repressed for many years.”
“Iran is failing at every level despite the terrible deal made with them by the Obama Administration,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Jan. 1. “The great Iranian people have been repressed for many years. They are hungry for food & for freedom. Along with human rights, the wealth of Iran is being looted. TIME FOR CHANGE!”
