US President Trump to discuss Iran nuclear deal with military leaders

President Donald Trump will take up the issue of the Iran nuclear deal during a meeting with senior US military officials at the White House Thursday evening. According to the president, Iran has not lived up to the “spirit” of the international agreement.

“We must not allow Iran … to obtain nuclear weapons,” Trump said during a meeting with military leaders at the White House.

“The Iranian regime supports terrorism and exports violence, bloodshed and chaos across the Middle East. That is why we must put an end to Iran’s continued aggression and nuclear ambitions. They have not lived up to the spirit of their agreement,” he said.
