Trump Has Decided About Iran Nuclear Deal — But Won’t Tell Us

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he had made a decision on whether or not to pull the United States out of the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, but he declined to say what it was.

Trump, when asked by reporters, said: “I have decided.”

If Trump does not certify in October that Iran is complying with the agreement, the U.S. Congress will have 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions waived under the pact.

Responding to Trump’s comments, a senior Iranian official told Reuters Iran was prepared for all scenarios if the United States walked out on the agreement and was capable of resuming its restricted nuclear activities immediately if necessary.

In a pugnacious speech on Tuesday before the U.N. General Assembly annual gathering of world leaders, Trump called the accord “an embarrassment.”
