France's Macron 'considers' trip to Iran after Rouhani invite

US President Donald Trump is set to outline a tougher US strategy for countering Iran that will seek to strengthen the enforcement of what he considers a flawed nuclear deal and deny funding for Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, on Friday.

Trump warned that if "we are not able to reach a solution working with Congress and our allies, then the agreement will be terminated". About an hour after Trump had finished speaking, the leaders of Britain, France and Germany issued a joint statement urging Congress not to enact new sanctions that would "undermine" the deal and stressing that their three nations, which helped negotiate the deal, "stand committed" to its implementation.

Iran might in a "typically provocative" move launch a ballistic missile test to show Trump's "words mean nothing".

"Iran will not hesitate to give them a fitting response", Rouhani said in a speech to the nation. It "will wait to see what the U.S. does rather than what is said". The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the monitoring body charged with verifying Iran's compliance with the agreement, also recently reassured the world that Iran is fulfilling its obligations.

According to the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act (INRA) passed by U.S. Congress in 2015, the Trump administration is required every 90 days to recertify to Congress Iran's compliance with the nuclear deal.

Neither are formal treaties, and President Obama could not have gotten either through Congress if he had tried, he notes: "So in pulling out, it's difficult to say he's way out of the mainstream".

The trigger points (for reimposing sanctions) that Trump is signaling to Congress it should pass as part of a new bill "are both against the spirit and letter" of the nuclear deal.

It's Trump's party now: "A state lawmaker in Indiana has drafted a measure to require licenses for journalists akin to those that pertain to handgun owners, a proposal legal experts says directly violates the First Amendment".

That has meant preventing outreach to Russian President Vladimir Putin, preventing a trade war with China, and reaffirming support for the mutual defense principles of NATO, Mr. Wright notes.

By not withdrawing from the pact immediately, President Trump is trying to work with Congress and follow the law.

Some Trump critics described the Iran plan as part of pattern: He chips away at various programs, whether it's health care, immigration, or the Iran deal, then throws the issues to Congress to accept or change. "The Democrats don't want to abandon it. So this could just go nowhere in Congress", Kemp told "Power Lunch". "If we walk away from this deal, all of the hard-won access, limits and monitoring will end and that puts the U.S. and Iran back on the path to military conflict". "I congratulate President Trump for his courageous decision today, he boldly confronted Iran's terrorist regime", Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a video statement shortly after Trump's announcement. The nuclear deal with Iran is all but dead.

Europe fears not only that Iran will resume the quest for the bomb but that the US is relinquishing its leadership role in a stable, rules-based international system.

It stalled Iran's nuclear program and marginally thawed relations between Iran and what Tehran dubs the "Great Satan".

"I am authorizing the Treasury Department to further sanction the entire Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps for its support for terrorism, and to apply sanctions to its officials, agents and affiliates", said Trump. Trump's threats against Iran will damage America. Ryan also praised the move on Iran, saying Friday "simply enforcing a fatally flawed agreement is not sufficient". One example, Tillerson said, would be development of prohibited ballistic missiles. And he noted that, despite Trump's campaign rhetoric, even he was not yet willing to withdraw from the nuclear accord outright. So the European statement may help keep the deal in limbo, for now.

Said McMaster: "Nobody's for Iran getting nuclear weapons".
