Trump Says Iran Is ‘Not Living Up To Spirit’ Of The Obama-Era Nuclear Agreement

Donald Trump said Iran is “not living up to the spirit” of the nuclear deal that was struck under the Obama administration.

The president made the remark in during a joint press conference with the prime minister of Italy Paolo Gentiloni at the White House Thursday — just hours after the administration notified Congress that Iran is complying with the terms of the 2015 agreement.

“I’m all for agreements, but that is a bad one,” Trump said. “They are not living up to the spirit of the agreement — I can tell you that. We are analyzing it very closely and we will see what happens.” (RELATED: Tillerson: U.S. Is Conducting ‘Comprehensive Review’ Of Iran Nuclear Deal)

When he was asked later in the press conference if the United States will play a role in stabilizing Libya, Trump said, “I do not see a role in Libya. I think the United States has enough roles.”

“We’re in a role everywhere.”
