good evening we begin with the latest on what is regarded as being a major shake. us policy towards iran the us president donald trump saying earlier on the scene. at he is not going to certify the deal struck two years ago. between six world powers and iran that deal. the goal of cutting the islamic republic's nuclear ambitions was speaking at the white house earlier on today president trump's said the deal is no longer the interests of us national security. although he did not pull you s. of the deal altogether. please give in the us congress sixty days to decide whether or not to re introduce sanctions against tehran is reset. states and i am announcing today that we cannot. and will no. make this certification. we will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence. more tara. and the very real
2:32 pm
threat of iran's nuclear breakout. that is why i am directing. my administration to work closely with congress and our allies. to address the deals many serious flaws so that the iranian regime can never threaten the world with nuclear. weapons. us president donald trump is speaking of that. will his sick comments that drew i from the iranian president hassan rouhani who took could to the airwaves and later on this evening. disregarding what the us president saying he said. calling his remarks baseless and saying that it's not up to one country. to put the jet though to put it a multinational deal in jeopardy. and that is what the iranian president said just a short while ago hitting back. at dot more aggressive stance been taken that by the trump administration of principles white house correspondent phillip
2:33 pm
crowther. isn't standing by for us and joins us now. at philip wettest this announcement by president trump leave the iran deal. still very much. dad it's. what donald trump didn't do here? is he didn't withdraw from the iran nuclear deal as the president of the united states. he can withdraw the country from it whenever he wants now that doesn't mean that the nuclear deal ceases to exist after all there are plenty of other countries that signed up for it and they've as you heard just now. all rules still sticking to this agreement don't from also did not sir did not announce that he wanted to renegotiate this agreement straight away. instead he punted it took congress. and what congress we will now do is it basically has three different options. one is to decide to change nothing and leave the nuclear deal as is that would mean that all trump and ninety days truck timime would probably. have to decide whether to certify the deal again or not. another option for congress
2:34 pm
is this one it would be to impose new sanctions may be similar to the ones. that were eliminated with that sanction relief that iran got a in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program if those sanctions were to return no new ones would to be. imposed well then the nuclear deal might fall to pieces. because one that member of the agreement might not want to stay in it. then there is the actual preference that the white house has. it wants a more aggressive stance toward iran as you just said in that includes a curbs on its good ballistic missile program if possible. the united states doesn't want iran to be sponsoring terrorist organizations abroad that's another example given by us president donald trump. and what he would like to see congress do is create triggers when one of those things happen and they are rather likely to happen after all. then you sanctions would be put in place that's again would put into danger the nuclear deal with iran for now. the
2:35 pm
avante via trump administration rather is sticking to the nuclear deal and it is keeping open that option of staying in it for quite awhile. but they don't always we the us presidents who will want to get out of its almost as quickly as possible after all remember it was a campaign promise. he wanted to stop this deal as quickly as possible. yeah it's interesting because of course in making that announcement today of president trump has irritated. a quite a few key u. s. allies namely the united kingdom france and germany of taken at unprecedented step of. issuing a joint statement saying that delays is absolutely necessary also russia clearly. irritated with that stands been taken by washington however he has pleased. at israel and saudi arabia to give the impression that to president trump is also winning favor with the domestic audience. in taking this more aggressive position against iran phili. he m might welell be becaus. what a vote soo wantsts isr
2:36 pm
a president to they elected into office? to keep theheir promises and that was that promise to get rid of what donald trump considers. the worst deal of all time one of many was deals of all time in his opinion but this was one of them. and this might be perceived as him getting rid ofof t the nuclear deal w wh iran though of course. he's nonot actually it's stitilly much. in placece so for that rean alone while his supporters might very well like this this is the blunt donald trump he was very aggressss. toward iran a lot of people in the united states believe that iran is one of the biggest thrhreats to us national sececurityy. along with north korea just take a look at some of the words of donald trump used a fanatical road regime a dictatorship a state sponsor of terrorism. a lot of american voters want to see donald trump bee aggressive wiwith the countries that ae perceived ass being. america's enemies b but when yoyou look at what's actualy going and going on inside the whwhite housese a long y

away from donald trump's electorate. well not everybody is on the same page that donald trump wanted to get out of this nuclear deal with iran didn't really succeed in doing so. really didn't want to re certify this that he didn't do in the end but there are plenty of people within his administration. who think that the nuclear deal with iran is going just fine and are in absolute agreement with that the in the united states allies with the united kingdom with france with the european union? at with germany with russia and china as well. they believe that this is going just fine but have not been able to convince the president and all now basically. getting on board with him and all creating this policy that you saw portrayed today by us president donald trump shipy
