Sources: Pres­i­dent to of­fer cri­tique of deal with Iran

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - MORNING BRIEFING -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump plans to de­liver a broad and harsh cri­tique of

Iran in a speech Fri­day declar­ing that the land­mark Iran nu­clear deal is not in Amer­ica’s na­tional se­cu­rity in­ter­ests, ac­cord­ing to U.S. of­fi­cials and out­side ad­vis­ers to the ad­min­is­tra­tion.

Un­der U.S. law, Trump faces a Sun­day dead­line to no­tify Con­gress whether Iran is com­ply­ing with the ac­cord.

Although Trump in­tends to say Iran is liv­ing up to the let­ter of the agree­ment, he will make the case that the deal is fa­tally flawed and that its non-nu­clear be­hav­ior vi­o­lates the spirit of the re­gional sta­bil­ity it was in­tended to en­cour­age, the of­fi­cials and ad­vis­ers said.
