Why Would Trump Scrap the Iran Nuclear Deal?

Iran deal negotiators to brief House Democrats

President Trump is widely expected to make a decision on whether to decertify the deal Iran struck in 2015 with world powers to curb its nuclear program in return for the lifting of most global sanctions. It eliminates two-thirds of Iran's centrifuges and 98 percent of its enriched-uranium stockpile, and it is verified by the most intrusive verification and inspection regime ever negotiated.

Experts also say past attempts by the United States to play tough with the Revolutionary Guards have only strengthened it in Iran, and Trump risks further escalating tensions with the country as he mulls a move to "decertify" the Iran nuclear deal. If Washington decides to enforce its decision to renegotiate or terminate the deal, it can make it impossible for any nation that wants to do business in the United States or with American financial institutions to also do business with Iran.

Beirut-Iran warned the United States against designating its Revolutionary Guards Corp as a terrorist group and said U.S. regional military bases would be at risk if further sanctions were passed. While some individuals in the entity have already been declared terrorists by USA agencies, this would apply to the entire body.

During his speech at the UN General Assembly on September 19, the USA president described the JCPOA as "the worst and most one-sided transaction Washington has ever entered into", a characterization he often used during his presidential campaign. Mattis said last week during testimony on Capitol Hill that he favors staying within the deal.

The meeting is part of an ongoing effort by Democrats in Congress and other officials who support the nuclear pact to bolster support for the deal by spelling out the consequences of its collapse.

"President Putin has repeatedly spoken about the importance of the agreement on the so-called Iranian nuclear dossier", Peskov told reporters.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Iran purposefully excluded its military capability from the nuclear deal, as "it is not intended as leverage or a bargaining chip in future negotiations". That's why even AIPAC, the powerful pro-Israel lobby group that sunk millions of dollars into trying to defeat the deal, is not calling on Trump to "decertify" Iran's compliance or withdraw from the agreement.

IRAN is hiding the true power of its nuclear weapons programme in secret bases hidden from inspectors, a new report has claimed.

There's no evidence Iran isn't honouring its side of the deal. "But above all, fixing the deal means getting rid of the sunset clause".

The Jewish advocacy group J Street has launched a public and political campaign against US President Donald Trump. The next certification date is October 15.

According to Guardian, "The European signatories to the deal - the UK, France and Germany - have urged Trump to uphold it, and are focusing their energies on lobbying Congress not to reimpose sanctions, which could prove fatal to the agreement".

Iranian officials have threatened to respond if Trump declares that Iran is not complying with the deal. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made an unprecedented appearance before a joint meeting of Congress to denounce the deal and what he described as the dangers posed by Iran, going around the White House to oppose one of President Barack Obama's top priorities.
