Trump Planning to Shake Nuclear Deal with Iran

US president Donald Trump is very likely to take a major step on Friday against the international nuclear deal with Iran where he has plans to lay out a more aggressive approach to the activities of Iran in the Middle East which can enhance the risk of upsetting the relations of the United States with the European allies. The president of the United States, Donald Trump speaks for the introduction of his secretary of Homeland Security nominee Kirstjen Nielsen in the East Room of the White House in Washington on the 12th of October. Trump has mentioned in a White House statement that it is time for the entire world to join us in the demand to the government of Iran to bring an end to its pursuit of destruction and death which actually flagged key elements of the strategy. Trump is all set to present a plan in a speech scheduled at 12.45 pm EDT at the White House where the product of weeks of discussions between him and his national security team.

Officials of the United States said that Trump was expected to announce that he will not certify the 2015 nuclear accord between the six world powers and Iran and he has referred to the deal as the 'worst deal ever' as it was not in his view but in the national interest of the United States. In this situation, Trump has found himself under a huge amount of pressure as he considered to de certify the deal. This is a move that would not pay any heed to the warnings from outside and inside his administration by doing so will lead to the risk of undermining the credibility of the United States abroad. Trump had already reaffirmed it two times and he is very reluctant in doing so for the third time.

This de certification would not pull the United States out of the deal but would give Congress a time period of 60 days to make a decision whether to re impose the sanctions or not on Iran which were suspended under the pact that was negotiated during the administration of the former US President Barack Obama. The chairman of the US House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee Michael McCaul has stated that he thinks that Donald Trump is very likely to not completely pull out of the deal but de certify compliance.
