President Donald Trump has announced that he will put the kashrut on the Iran nuclear deal.
In an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Trump said that he would withdraw from the deal, and that Iran has “stolen” the US “with their support.”
“I’m not going to get into it,” Trump told CBS.
“I think they’re doing it.
I think it’s a total scam.
I’m not getting into it.
If I do, it’s going to be a very difficult thing for me to do.
I don’t want to get in.”
Trump added that Iran “stole our uranium, but they’re not even taking our money.”
Trump made the comments during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”
The president also said that Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, was “totally behind” the deal.
“I think he’s totally behind this,” Trump declared.
“You have the Iranian president, he’s just a horrible man.
You have the head of the Revolutionary Guard, and you have the guy in charge of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which is totally behind it.
You’ve got a very bad deal that’s going down.”
Trump’s comments come as he prepares to sign an executive order that would suspend US sanctions against Iran and make it easier for it to export oil.
Iran has been locked in a long-running diplomatic dispute with the US over the country’s nuclear program.
The US and its allies believe Iran is seeking to develop a nuclear weapon.
The Iran deal, signed in 2015, calls for the lifting of some sanctions and the easing of economic restrictions in exchange for the return of hundreds of billions of dollars in Iranian assets frozen by the US and the European Union.
Iran, a nuclear-armed power, has consistently rejected the deal and its backers, including Iran’s arch-foe the US, accuse it of violating its commitments.
