The US government on Tuesday slapped sanctions on 18 Iranian entities and individuals linked to Iran's ballistic missile programme and other non-nuclear activities.
While lifting nuclear-linked sanctions, the United States maintains sanctions related to Iran's ballistic missile program, human rights record and what Washington charges is its support for global terrorism.
The senior administration official said the Trump administration meant to employ a strategy that would "address the totality of Iran's malign behavior" and not just focus on the Iran nuclear agreement. They argued that the deal is structured so that the USA and its allies delivered the benefits to Iran up front.
On Monday, after talking points for certifying Iran's compliance already had been distributed within the administration, Trump told senior advisors he was having second thoughts and wanted other options.
In an hour-long meeting last week, according to The New York Times, Trump spent 55 minutes telling some of his highest-ranking national security advisers that he wanted to abandon the Iran deal.
Trump has recently called Iran a "rogue" state, which has aroused fierce response from Tehran. Because the administration will have to certify that the deal is in the national security interests of the US every 90 days, those saboteurs will have numerous opportunities to lobby Trump to change his mind.
The agreement was opposed by most Republicans, specially hawks who argued the administration had squandered a chance to compel the Iranian government reeling under the debilitating effects of the sanctions to give up its nuclear programme entirely instead of settling on a temporary freeze.

The new sanctions, according to the representative of the White House, will be created to counter large-scale expansion of Iran's Armed Forces, as well as its operations in Syria and the Middle East in general.
