Trump Vows to End Iran Deal Himself if Congress Won’t Act

from The Wall Street Journal,

President says he won’t certify that ‘rogue regime’ in Tehran is complying with nuclear agreement.

President Donald Trump announced Friday that he won’t certify that Iran is complying with the 2015 nuclear agreement, detailing a lengthy list of complaints and vowing to cancel the deal himself if Congress and U.S. allies don’t act to address his concerns about the accord. Mr. Trump reiterated his opposition to the agreement reached among international powers, declaring his decision after a lengthy denunciation of what he called a “rogue regime” run by radicals. “Iran is under the control of a fanatical regime,” Mr. Trump said in a speech at the White House, adding it has “spread death, destruction and chaos all around the globe.” Detailing grievances against Iran going back to 1979, the year of the country’s Islamic revolution, Mr. Trump broadly condemned the country’s rulers. “Iranian aggression continues to this day,” he said. “The regime remains the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.”
