President Trump announced this week that he will unveil his decision regarding the Iranian nuclear agreement on Tuesday at 2pm; setting off widespread speculation across global capitals over the fate of the international weapons treaty.
The President confirmed the decision on social media Monday, saying “I will be announcing my decision on the Iran Deal tomorrow from the White House at 2:00pm.”

Trump’s announcement comes just hours after officials from the UK, France, and other nations urged the President to keep the agreement; urging the United States to seek a “better” deal while remaining signed-on to former President Barack Obama’s signature international “accomplishment.”
“We need to find a way of fixing that, and the president has been right to call attention to it, but you can’t just do that without throwing the baby out with the bathwater,” said UK Foreign Minister Boris Johnson.
