President Donald Trump has repeated the United States’ threat to ratchet up sanctions on Tehran and again denounced the 2015 nuclear deal Iran signed with world powers.
Trump’s latest threat came via a tweet on Wednesday as the UN nuclear watchdog held an emergency meeting to discuss Iran’s nuclear program – reports Al Jazeera.
“Iran has long been secretly ‘enriching,’ in total violation of the terrible 150 Billion Dollar deal made by John Kerry and the Obama Administration. Remember, that deal was to expire in a short number of years. Sanctions will soon be increased, substantially!” Trump tweeted without elaborating or offering evidence.
