President Donald Trump announced on Twitter Monday that he would make a decision on whether to continue the Iran deal or to decide it is time to formally end the agreement.
I will be announcing my decision on the Iran Deal tomorrow from the White House at 2:00pm.
Trump has condemned the agreement since his first days on the campaign trail in 2015.
“As I have said many times, the Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into,” Trump said during a speech earlier at the White House.
Trump has also recently discussed the Iran situation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is known as an outspoken critic of the agreement. Netanyahu unveiled evidence that proves the Iran deal is “based on lies and Iranian deception.”
The president will have to decide whether to reimpose sanctions on Iran and how he might do that.
