UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — President Donald Trump will keep the United States in the Iran nuclear deal — for now.
On Friday, Jan. 12, Trump said this is the last time he will waive nuclear sanctions against Iran.
He’s now calling on the U.S. Congress and its European allies to amend the deal, which he says “gave Iran far too much in exchange for far too little.”
The clock is now ticking. A supplemental deal must be reached within 120 days or the U.S. will withdraw. Trump added, “No one should doubt my word.”
On Thursday, however, the EU’s foreign policy chief maintained the deal is working to keep Iran’s nuclear program in check.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry previously warned that a U.S. withdrawal would prompt an “appropriate and heavy response.” Iran did not immediately respond to Trump’s latest statements on the nuclear deal.
