Iran President Warns of ‘Problems’ Ahead of Trump’s Nuclear Decision

Iran’s president has warned that his country might face “some problems” as President Trump is due to finally make a call on whether to pull the U.S. out of the Iranian nuclear deal. Trump is due to reveal his decision Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET, according to his Twitter account. “It is possible that we will face some problems for two or three months, but we will pass through this,” said President Hassan Rouhani. He added that Iran wants to keep “working with the world and constructive engagement with the world” whatever Trump decides. If Trump pulls out of the deal, he risks angering allies such as France and Britain, whose top diplomats have spent the past weeks trying to persuade him and other high-ranking officials such as Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the deal is vital for avoiding war.
