Should Trump Axe Obama’s Iran Nuke Deal?

Written by  Michael Morris

President Donald Trump has made it clear that he does not like the flawed and risky 2015 Iran nuclear agreement that he inherited from the Obama administration.

He called it one of the worst deals ever negotiated during the presidential campaign and declared it to be an “embarrassment” in his speech to the United Nations General Assembly last month.

When asked what he will do about it, he said, “I’ll let you know.”

The White House has tentatively scheduled a major speech for today that is expected to outline its official policy on the nuclear deal.

Deadlines and Red lines

The administration faces an Oct. 15 deadline for certifying the Iran nuclear agreement, which is required every 90 days under the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015.

After the State Department twice certified the agreement in order to meet 90-day deadlines earlier this year, Trump indicated that he was reluctant to do so again.

And it is impossible to see how he could do so. Iran has proclaimed that it will not permit inspections of its military bases, which are both permitted and essential under the nuclear deal.

This is a far cry from “transparently, verifiably, and fully implementing” the nuclear agreement, as stipulated under the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act.
