What does a diplomat do? U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell wants to correct the record


Ahead of airing our full interview with new U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, we highlight the topic that brought him into headlines right as he started his tenure: the Iran nuclear deal.

Ever since U.S. President Donald Trump pulled out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or the JCPOA, Grenell says German businesses now have a choice to make: “Either they’re going to do business in a very small market of Iran or they’re going to choose to do business in a very large market of the United States.”

The full interview with U.S. Ambassador Richard Grenell will air on Thursday at 9 p.m. after Fresh Air, Saturday at 10:30 a.m. after Berlin Rewind, and Saturday at 7 p.m. after To the Point.
