There's a meeting scheduled for Tuesday between the Trump administration and members of the U.
S Senate, the subject.
The Middle Eastern country of Iran.
In recent weeks, the U.
S has suggested that Iran may be planning attacks on Americans in the Middle East.
Iran has denied that, but both nations have ramped up their criticism of each other since last year, when the U.

S officials say their intelligence indicates Iran might be putting missiles on small boats in the Persian Gulf.
That body of water is on Iran's southern border.
An American aircraft carrier battle group has been deployed to the region.
American bomber planes and defense missiles have been sent there.
American staff members have been told to leave the U.
Embassy in Iraq.
That's on Iran's western border.
Still, with all this going on, Iran's supreme leader has said there will be no war, and its foreign minister added that no country is quote under the illusion of being able to fight Iran.
At the White House.
When U.
President Donald Trump was recently asked about the possibility of war with Iran, he said, Quote, I hope not.

10 seconds Trivia.
Which of these grocery store chains was founded as the Great Western tea company in 18 83 Kroger, Albertsons, Public's or Trader Joe's Great Western tea company, was run by Barney Kroger, whose name was on his stores by 1902 It's not the biggest grocery chain in America.
You'll find out in a moment which one is.
But all chains are dealing with some similar challenges in a changing world.
Consumers are doing more shopping online that includes groceries.
More people are looking for home delivery and dollar stores and drugstores air trying their hand at selling groceries.
So the competition is fierce and profit margins the money stores make on groceries are small.
This doesn't mean that everyone struggling, but smaller chains are feeling the pinch.
America's grocery shopping habits are changing, and right now the biggest winners and groceries aren't necessarily the change you'd expect for Wal Mart.
Groceries, air, huge business.
They make up more than half of WalMart sales chain is focused on lowering prices and building out its grocery delivery and store pick up options.
That service could generate $35 billion annually for the industry by 2020.
But it's not just big names.
Dominating in grocery German discount grocery chain all day is courting shoppers with super low prices, small stores and its own quality brands.
Case in point.
About 90% of the products all the cells or private label.
The grocery chain is more than 1800 stores today, and plants add 700 more by the end of 2022.
That would make it the country's third largest grocery chain, behind Wal Mart and Kroger.
But for the company that can deliver you almost anything almost any time, Grocery has proved a tough business to crack Amazon about Whole Foods.
Back in 2017 for close to $14 billion the tech giant quickly lowered prices and gave sweet discounts to prime members.
It was all part of the plan to get rid of Whole Foods whole paycheck image, but it wasn't enough.
Amazons, 100 million U.
Prime members haven't flocked to Whole Foods these days.
Shoppers have a lot of other options for buying organic, so Amazon is lowering prices again.
Some other competitors, like Kroger, are learning from the discount chains and adding more private label products.
But the new leaders and grocery have spelled trouble for smaller regional supermarket chains.
In the end, the chains coming out on top with one's promising, no frills brick and mortar convenience and rock bottom prices way believe that robots should be put to work.
His service operators on the first place to start is where people are hanging hundreds of feet in the air.
Scott and Robotics.
We have a robot that cleans windows.
So if we look at a 40 floor building that has roughly 300,000 square feet of window surface to be cleaned, it would take a standard work today roughly two and 1/2 months of actual work to clean on with Osmo on just two supervisors waken do that same working aboutthe robot actually Max the building in three D as it approaches the buildings.
Every obstacle that it might have, like a head bobbing out the window, a window opening that robot will self correct and move around it.
So it's not break a window.
How does it know somebody's sticking their head out?
Well, it has computer vision and touch sensors so it can see and feel.
I think the first thing people think of when they see this type of system is automation is coming for our jobs, and this probably seems like the perfect example of that.
People who probably don't make high wages cleaning these buildings.
They're gonna be replaced by this robot.
Well, I think eventually society mankind will be replacing dangerous jobs because it doesn't make sense for people to be risking their lives from where we stand.
When we look at the job, we are automating.
It makes perfect sense for us to put the person in a safe position supervising the robots, and that the robots dangled hundreds of feet in the air.
