President Donald J. Trump is expected to decide Friday whether to continue waiving sanctions against Iran that were lifted as part of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement.

European Union powers on Thursday urged Trump to endorse the deal insisting it is essential for international security.

The foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany threw their weight behind the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear ambitions and insisted that the Islamic Republic is respecting it.

Under the accord, Iran slowed its nuclear program in exchange for an easing of international economic sanctions. In addition, within the week, the administration must also tell Congress whether Iran is complying with the major components of the nuclear deal.

Dennis Michael Lynch said in a text from his travels, “Trump needs to crack down on Iran.  No more listening to Obama-era voices.”
