Trump Moves To Decertify Iran Nuclear Deal


 President Trump is decertifying the Iran nuclear accord. A presidential certification that Iran is abiding by the accord must happen every 90 days. In a White House speech, the President argued that Iran is not living up to the spirit of the nuclear deal.  He said Iran is being run by a hostile, rogue regime and is the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism.  Trump insisted that Iran must never be allowed to acquire a nuclear weapon.  

The President is not pulling the U.S. out of the international accord at this time.  Instead he is asking Congress to add new conditions to the deal, which was negotiated by the U.S. and other world powers in 2015. If Congress reimposes sanctions over Tehran's nuclear efforts, the accord will likely fall apart.  

Trump called the Iran deal one of the worst and most one-sided accords the U.S. has ever been involved with.  He said the accord only delays Iran's nuclear capability.  Meantime, Trump said the U.S. will impose tough sanctions on the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps.  He called it a corrupt terror force.
