President Trump said Friday hes decertifying the Iranian nuclear deal forged under the Obama administration, but stopped short of ending the international agreement, instead giving Congress 60 days to take a tougher approach toward Tehrans lawless behavior.
We will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence, more terror and the very real threat of Irans nuclear breakout, Mr. Trump said. Iran is not living up to the spirit of the deal.
In an address from the White House, the president also said hes directing the Treasury Department to sanction Irans Revolutionary Guard Corps over its support of terrorism in the Middle East, calling it a long overdue step.
History has shown the longer we ignore a threat, the more dangerous that threat becomes, the president said.
Mr. Trump, who has called the 2015 agreement signed by President Obama a horrible deal and threatened to rip it up, instead decided reluctantly to try to beef up the restrictions on Tehran by going to Congress.
