Behind the Scenes at the Iran Talks in Vienna and Donald Trump’s “Washing Machine” of Money


Over months of negotiations at the Iran nuclear talks, several key players are people you’ve never heard of including the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi. David Sanger explains the vital role he played. Plus, Indira Lakshmanan reports on the intense negotiations between Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif. Back home, President Obama intensely defended the deal during a White House press conference. Michael Crowley was in the room and reports on the president’s efforts to sell the deal. And in the 2016 race for the White House, Jeanne Cummings looks at Republican candidate Donald Trump’s campaign spending — including $10,000 per month in rent for office space at his own building in New York City. Cummings calls it the “washing machine of Trump money.”
