Trump has never made it a secret that he is no fan of Obama’s Iran Deal. It is one of the many parts of Obama’s legacy which would be easy to undo because it was never ratified by congress in any way. It was just another thing that got done with Obama’s pen and phone.
Now there are reports which suggest Trump could undo the deal as soon as January.
The Blaze has the story:
Politico: Trump could nix Iran nuclear deal in January
President Donald Trump could nix the Iran nuclear deal in January, and analysts believe he might do it, according to Politico.
Why is this happening?
New legal deadlines coming up in January require the president to certify that Tehran is meeting its obligations under the agreement.
International inspectors have said Iran is meeting its requirements. But in October, Trump refused to certify the country’s compliance. He cited Iranian aggression in the Middle East as one reason, Politico reported. That triggered a 60-day deadline for Congress to restore sanctions “by a simple majority, without the possibility of a Senate filibuster.”
But Congress was busy working on tax reform and took no action.
In October, Trump called the Iran agreement, “the worst deal ever.”
If this happens – and it certainly could – expect members of Obama’s team to flip out.
