Iran nuclear deal

Trump to make announcement on Iran nuclear deal Tuesday

President Trump tweeted on Monday afternoon that he will announce his "decision on the Iran Deal" Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET.

Under the 2015 agreement between Iran and the U.S., U.K., Russia, France, China, and Germany, Iran agreed to restrict its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief. Trump, who has called the deal "ridiculous" and said several times he will pull out, has until May 12 to decide whether he's going to withdraw from it or not.

When French President Emmanuel Macron visited the U.S. last month, Trump said he wanted a new deal with "solid foundations," and while Macron has urged Trump to stay in the pact, he said he "bet" Trump would withdraw. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday his country is "prepared for all scenarios and no change will occur in our lives next week."
