Iran has not lived up to spirit of nuclear deal

US Congress

Trump was joined at the White House by military leaders for a dinner on Thursday evening when he suggested the current moment was the "calm before the storm".

Trump asked reporters gathered in the State Dining Room. "If the administration could put the nuclear deal in a corner, everyone could happily get back to work on dealing with everything else that is a problem with Iran", a senior administration official said Thursday.

The presidential administration was previously instructed to review its policy on Iran, not only looking at Tehran's compliance with the nuclear deal but also its behavior in the region.

Trump, who called the pact an "embarrassment" and "the worst deal ever negotiated", faces an October 15 deadline for certifying that Iran was complying with its terms.

A mid-October deadline for recertifying Iran's compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is coming closer with the US president being opposed by the Congress on the future of the agreement.

The sources added that he would say: "It is not in the national interest of the United States and kicking the issue to a reluctant Congress". If one of those next steps is to reinstitute sanctions on Iran, then the deal will be dead.

Earlier in a cabinet room meeting, Trump met with Defense Secretary James Mattis and top military officials as word spread that next week he intends to decertify the Iran nuclear agreement.

As part of the landmark 2015 deal, Tehran agreed to curtail its nuclear activities in exchange for relief from worldwide sanctions.

Trump faces an October 15 deadline to tell Congress if Iran is complying with the nuke deal and whether he believes it is in the interests of the US.

Reporters asked the president what he meant, but Trump did not clarify his comments, saying only, "You'll find out". "We've made more progress in our campaign to defeat ISIS in the last eight months than in many, many previous years, all combined", Trump said.

Trump left reporters in the dark after the foreboding remarks to sit down for an expensive White House meal, with peaceful classical music playing behind him.
