President Trump Pulls United States Out of Landmark Iran Nuclear Agreement

HeadlineMay 09, 2018

European nations are scrambling to save the landmark nuclear agreement with Iran, one day after President Trump announced he will pull the United States out of the deal and reimpose sanctions on Iran.

President Donald Trump: “The Iran deal is defective at its core. If we do nothing, we know exactly what will happen. 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. Therefore, I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.”

The 2015 agreement was worked out by the United States, five other world powers and Iran. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Iran has continued to meet its obligations under the agreement. We’ll have more on Trump’s decision to pull out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal after headlines.
