Trump Expected to Decertify Iran Nuclear Agreement
Deal or no deal? President Donald Trump is expected to refuse to certify the landmark 2015 nuclear deal as part of a more confrontational strategy toward Tehran. The move would avoid immediately withdrawing from the agreement, which restricts Iran’s nuclear program in return for lifting most international sanctions, but it would pass responsibility to Congress, allowing lawmakers to choose whether to resume sanctions. The five other countries that are party to the deal are likely to stay on board while they await Trump’s aggressive new Iran strategy, expected next week.
