Every 90 days, the President must certify to Congress that Iran is complying with the deal.

But they still have to convince Trump. He also told The Wall Street Journal that he "does not expect that they will be in compliance".

More than 80 experts on nuclear non-proliferation issues urged the Trump administration Wednesday to not abandon the global agreement reached with Iran to curb Tehran's nuclear weapons development program.

US President Donald Trump, who had made no secret of opposing the nuclear agreement in his election campaign, has threatened to "tear up" the agreement, calling it "the worst deal ever negotiated".

But Johnson said it is important for Iran to see that economic benefits result from the nuclear deal.

Last month, shortly after Trump grudgingly certified the Islamic Republic as abiding by the deal, reports emerged that he was directing his aides to develop a case for why the regime violated the agreement come the next October deadline. "It doesn't surprise me in the slightest to hear people are saying this".

If America is seen as purposely sabotaging the agreement, Kahl said it would provide "lots of ammunition for Iranian hardliners to bludgeon Rouhani, discredit reformists and pragmatists within the Iranian system". And, of course, on the other side, we in the United Kingdom think it very important that Iran ... should see that there are benefits, economic benefits from the JCPOA as well.

Perhaps. But Iran negotiated the current nuclear deal only after the USA imposed and enforced sanctions that cut its banking system off from the worldwide economy and cut off its ability to export oil.

But that certification to Congress, required every 90 days under US law and not as part of the Iran deal itself, is in jeopardy as Trump searches for a way out of the accord.

"We are not going to stand for what they are doing to this country", Trump told reporters traveling with him on Air Force One. "What's the USA going to offer in return?"

He has also continued to waive the economic sanctions on Iran that the United States agreed to lift as part of the agreement. Also, any foreign entities that do business with these groups are risking being sentenced to sanctions from the U.S. "This is Israel's position", Netanyahu said from Argentina, where he is on a Latin American swing before making his way to NY for the world body's confab.

With more hawkish voices no longer holding senior positions in the White House and the deadline approaching, opponents are vying for the president's ear, promoting their stance in the public arena.

Pushing a decision off on Congress would be similar to Trump's recent moves on other key policies, including immigration, health care and tax reform.

In a carefully read 20-minute address at the American Enterprise Institute, Haley argued that the nuclear deal can't be considered in isolation.
