Report: Trump to Decertify Iran Deal


President Donald Trump will decertify ex-president Obama's nuclear deal with Iran, the Jerusalem Post reports.

The president is required to certify the deal every 90 days by declaring that Iran is in compliance with the deal and the end of sanctions is in the interest of U.S. national security.

Trump is expected to decertify the deal on the basis of the latter consideration, in particular because of Iran's support for terrorism and its work on offensive weapons like ballistic missiles.

The decision not to certify does not withdraw the U.S. from the agreement. It requires Congress to undertake a 60-day review of the deal. Depending on the review's conclusions, only then will the president take action.
