President Trump still plans on ending the controversial nuclear deal with Iran enacted by Barack Obama, French President Emmanuel Macron said.
Iranian leaders say they will retaliate if President Trump follows through, though what that means isn’t yet clear.
According to Politico:
On the second day of Macron’s state visit, Trump called the Obama-era nuclear deal a “nightmare” that “should never have been negotiated,” wrongfooting his guest who wanted to convince the US president to maintain it.
“I can hear. I seemed to constantly hear that he (Trump) had no serious desire to maintain or defend” the agreement,” Macron told journalists late Wednesday before leaving the United States. “I consider that it’s a campaign pledge he made long ago … I don’t know. Rational analysis does not lead me to think he will stay in the deal.”
