President Trump Says Iran Deal Decision Coming 'Very Shortly'

Posted: Updated:

President Trump says he will "very shortly" announce his decision on U.S. participation in the landmark 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, as aides prepare for an end-of-the-week rollout.

Trump has until Sunday to notify Congress whether Iran remains in compliance with the accord. A congressional source and a non-governmental source familiar with the matter say the White House is looking at a Friday announcement after scrapping a tentative plan for Thursday. They were not authorized to discuss the timing publicly ahead of the announcement.

Speaking Wednesday at the White House, Trump told reporters, "You're going to see very soon."

Trump is expected to tell lawmakers the Iran deal is not in the U.S. national security interest but stop short of calling for a re-imposition of sanctions.
