President Trump Makes Iran Announcement

President Trump announced last night, via tweet, that an announcement about the Iran Deal would be coming on Tuesday May 8th, 2018, @ 2pm eastern.

Background of the Iran Deal. 

The Iran Deal was the result of months long preparation and two weeks of final intensive meetings in Vienna, the result, was a 159 page agreement that made headlines.

In this 2015 agreement that laid out a lengthy process spanning over 15-25 years the deal would be supervised, according to Investopedia

by an eight-member committee, including Iran, the United States of America, Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and the European Union.

The deal between the countries focused on limiting the ability of Iran to produce Nuclear weapons, while also lifting tough sanctions against Iran.

President Trump has been opposed to the deal and is today expected to withdraw from it. The announcement comes just a few days before President Trump would have to waive sanctions on Iran or allow the current waiver to expire.

President Trump “if I allowed this deal to stand there would be a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.”

President Trump “The U.S. is withdrawing from the Iran Deal.”
