Trump pulls out of Iran nuclear deal today: Live blog recap of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action announcement – CBS News
President Trump rolled out his much-anticipated decision to “withdraw” from the Iran nuclear deal, in keeping with a longtime campaign promise. The president claimed Tuesday that there is Israeli intelligence proving Iran is not in compliance with the agreement.
Mr. Trump said he fears the 2015 deal will allow the Iranian regime to amass nuclear weapons.
“In just a short period of time, the world’s leading state sponsor of terror will be on the cusp of acquiring the world’s most dangerous weapons,” Mr. Trump said from the White House Diplomatic Room. “Therefore, I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.”
