President Trump is slated to announce today the U.S. will decertify the landmark 2015 Iran nuclear deal—although it appears Trump has now backed away from his plans to withdraw the U.S. from the deal entirely. Instead, the White House is expected to instruct Congress to leave the agreement intact, for now. Trump has come under massive domestic and international pressure not to unravel the landmark agreement.
