Take this for what it's worth...

From The Hill:
President Trump on Monday sounded an optimistic note about future negotiations with Iran, saying at a press conference in Japan that he's not looking for regime change despite increasing tensions between the two countries.

"I'm not looking to hurt Iran at all. I'm looking to have Iran say, 'no nuclear weapons,'" Trump said during a press conference in Japan.

[...]"I think we'll make a deal," Trump said Monday. "I think Iran, again I think Iran has tremendous economic potential. and I look forward to letting them get back to the stage where they can show that.

"These are great people," he added. "It has a chance to be a great country, with the same leadership. We're not looking for regime change. I just want to make that clear. We're looking for no nuclear weapons."
It's seemed like Trump's trying to do a repeat of his "maximum pressure" strategy like he used on North Korea and more recently Venezuela, i.e. using sanctions and threats to try and bring them to the table.

If you can't overthrow the third-world "s-hole" that is Venezuela through sanctions and bluffs, I don't know how you can except to overthrow Iran.
