Report: Trump to Withdraw From Iran Deal Tuesday

-

President Trump has decided to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and will announce his intentions on Tuesday, reports the New York Times.

According to the Times, Trump is betting that he can force Iran into another negotiation and get a better deal as a result.

European allies have tried to persuade Trump to stay in the deal, called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, but Israel and Arab allies have pushed him to withdraw.

Iran received sanctions relief and billions of dollars in cash for temporarily stopping its nuclear program. But the deal did not address Iran's development of ballistic missiles and allowed Iran to enrich to continue its nuclear development work . It also quickly became clear that Iran was using the money gained from the deal to fund its aggression across the Middle East.
