Congress Seeks Deadline on Iran Accepting Tougher Nuclear Deal Standards

Rep. Peter Roskam

President Donald Trump is flanked by GOP senators to discuss health care

President Trump is expected to announce today that he cannot certify Iran’s compliance with the terms of the agreement over its nuclear program that it entered into with the United States and five other nations in 2015. The president’s decision, according to the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, will commence a 60-day review period during which the Republican-controlled Congress may re-impose sanctions against the Islamic theocracy for its intransigence and belligerence. Sanctions, I might add, that should never have been lifted in the first place.
