His Iran strategy angered Tehran and put Washington at odds with other signatories of the accord such as Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and the European Union, some of which have benefited economically on renewed trade with Iran.

"There is no evidence that I'm aware of that would suggest that regime was on the verge of collapse", said Michael Singh, an expert with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy who served on Republican President George W. Bush's National Security Council staff.

Rouhani assured Macron that Iran in turn "will continue to carry out its commitments" in the nuclear accord, the Elysee said.

President Donald Trump was set to unveil a more aggressive strategy to check Iran's growing power yesterday, but stop short of withdrawing from a landmark nuclear deal or declaring the powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization.

He said that would have allowed the be tougher on Iran when it comes to its "misbehavior" and support of terrorism.

He said this evening: "History has shown that the longer we ignore a threat the more dangerous it become".

It stalled Iran's nuclear program and marginally thawed relations between Iran and what Tehran dubs the "Great Satan".

"At present, Iran is subject to the world's most robust nuclear verification regime", IAEA director-general Yukiya Amano said in a statement after Trump's speech.

Carafano points to Trump's withdrawal from the Paris climate accord and his handling of the Iran deal as instructive. "We have buried many. like Trump and know how to fight against America".

U.S. Democrats expressed scepticism at Trump's decision. If Mexico, Canada, and the US can't make a deal, he said, the pact "will be terminated and that will be fine". "Then we would not only have North Korea as an acute problem".

"It is not a bilateral agreement, it does not belong to any single country", she said.

"Our governments are committed to ensuring the JCPoA is maintained", the joint statement said. Steffen Seibert, a German government spokesman, told reporters in Berlin on Friday that Germany viewed the deal as "an important instrument to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran".

The new designation freezes the IRGC out of the US financial system.

A source familiar with the issue said the triggers include reimposing US sanctions if Tehran were deemed to be less than a year away from developing a nuclear weapon.

And Donald Trump said today he's "met with the president" of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

It is far from clear Congress will be able to pass the legislation. The Treasury Department is looking to sanction specific individuals and entities believed to be connected with tangible support of terror.

The predominance of "mainstreamers" on his team came in part from his love of military generals and because there wasn't much of a "bench", says Wright of the Brookings Institution.

A formal statement from Iran's foreign ministry in English reinforced Rouhani's argument. Mr. Trump said. "This, as president of the United States, is unacceptable".

The decertification would not pull the US out of the Iran nuclear deal at the moment, but it would open a 60-day window in which US Congress could reimpose nuclear-related sanctions on Iran, a step which would mean the violation of the deal on the US side.
