Trump Contradicts State Department On Iran Deal

Trump Contradicts State Department On Iran Deal

Trump says he believes the attack will impact how the French people vote in Sunday's first round of voting in the presidential election.

Iran isn't meeting the "spirit" of the 2015 deal it signed with the United States and other world powers to roll back its nuclear weapons program, President Donald Trump said.

Trump described the accord as the "worst deal ever negotiated" during his campaign and threatened to tear it up, but analysts say that is increasingly unlikely.

He pointedly stopped sort of telegraphing whether or not the US would remain in the agreement.

"It was a awful agreement", said Trump, who has regularly blamed his predecessor Barack Obama for securing it. Trump's National Security Council (NSC) now is evaluating whether Iran - as it maintains it has - is in compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, and if the United States can impose sanctions.

The comments came the day after the U.S.

President Donald Trump believes he will "soon" get new health care legislation passed by Congress.

As part of Tuesday's letter to Congress, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson vowed to review the JCPOA and determine whether it is "vital" to the U.S.'s "national security interests".

According to White House spokesperson Sean Spicer, the review will aim to determine if Iran is in compliance with the deal, then proceed to provide the president with recommendations on the best path to take moving forward. "To tear up the Iran deal, in my view, would be giving Iran a license to get a nuclear weapon", said Iran Deal Chief Negotiator Wendy Sherman.

Under the deal struck between Iran and six other nations after 18 months of negotiations in July 2015, Tehran agreed to curb its nuclear program - suspected of being a front for weapons development - in exchange for worldwide oil and financial sanctions being lifted.

Their inability to compete with Ferrari this year may prevent them taking home a Grand Prix, and could leave the team in third place.

He declared the 2015 Iran nuclear deal failed to achieve its stated objective of preventing Tehran from becoming a nuclear state.

The administration said it has extended the sanctions relief to Iran in exchange for curbs on its nuclear programme. "The Trump administration has no intention of passing the buck to a future administration".

Most analysts who spoke to VICE News said they did not expect the U.S.to walk away from the nuclear deal.

Mattis arrives in Israel on Friday to meet his counterpart there, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, and how to contain Iranian influence is likely to be a top discussion item. "A comprehensive Iran policy requires we address all of the threats posed by Iran, and it is clear there are many", he said. "I think they (Iranians) are doing a tremendous disservice to an agreement that was signed".

Deutch began offering Secretary of State Rex Tillerson advice on how to go forward with the nuclear agreement already in place and how he should target human rights issue and terrorism. Trump supported Britain's decision to leave the European Union and has previously said he expected other countries to do the same. He did not specifically weigh in on the French election. But he said a strong Europe is "very, very important" to the United States. Still, the White House is eager to tout progress on the litany of agenda items he promised to fulfill in his first 100 days, despite setbacks including court bans on his proposed immigration limits and a high-profile failure in repealing and replacing the current health care law.
