President Trump reportedly told French President Emmanuel Macron he intends to announce that the U.S. will pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.
Macron and Trump spoke by phone Tuesday morning, hours before the president will announce the future of the 2015 agreement.
According to the New York Times, the U.S. is expected to reinstate sanctions against Iran that were waived as part of the deal, which was negotiated under former President Barack Obama’s administration and signed in 2015. A source told the New York Times the Trump administration will also place additional economic penalties on Tehran.
The article goes on to state the following:
The president has railed against the Iran deal frequently, calling it the “worst deal ever negotiated” and vowed during the 2016 campaign to either withdraw the U.S. from the agreement or renegotiate it.
But a second source told the New York Times that negotiations over the nuclear deal crumbled after the president insisted Iran face sharp limits on its nuclear fuel production after 2030. The current accord lifts those limits.
Fox News’ White House correspondent John Roberts reported that the White House said the NY Times’ story is not correct. President Trump is scheduled to announce his decision at 2pm ET Tuesday.
