"The Iran Deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into", he said on 19 September.
Trumptold the Wall Street Journal in July that he does not think he will certify that Iran remains in compliance with the accord, which places limits on the country's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
However, Cotton notes that decertifying Iran's compliance is not the same thing as pulling out of the deal and that Congress could seek to revise rather than reverse the deal.
But there's a crucial constituency that may not be on the same page as Trump: "his" generals. Defense Secretary Jim Mattissaid the United States should consider staying in the deal unless it were proven that Tehran was not abiding by the agreement.
During the hearing, Sen.
Speaking at the hearing, Mattis said, "I believe that they [Iran] fundamentally are [in compliance]".
But the White House sees things differently from the Pentagon. Under the agreement, Iran forfeited 98 percent of its enriched uranium, decommissioned two-thirds of its centrifuges, and agreed to the most rigorous inspections regime in human history so the global community could ensure its compliance with the agreement.
If he doesn't, Congress have 60 days to decide where or reimpose sanctions on Iran that had been suspended under the pact.
During a Senate hearing on Tuesday, the top USA military official asserted that he believed Pakistan's spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) had ties to terrorist groups.
In the meantime, the Trump administration could proceed with its government-wide review of Iran policy and formulate a comprehensive strategy.
Contrary to Trump's claims, Dunford testified Tuesday that Iran is following the requirements of the deal. "There's just one problem: It's a myth".
Two years after its negotiation, the agreement is working. It revolves around clauses known as the "sunset provisions", which stipulate when the various restrictions imposed on Iran's nuclear program expire and which critics say provide Iran with a patient pathway to acquiring nuclear weapons.
As for President Trump, Ehteshami noted that his hands are essentially tied on the issue.
Nevertheless, there's a real likelihood that Trump will punt the matter to Congress, passing the buck to an already divided and dysfunctional body.
Much depends on how Trump frames their decision - if he demands Congress do their job and sanction a "nefarious" Iran, then the pressure will grow.
The large number of signers of the letter, even though they're all from the same party, is unusual for an issue as divisive as Iran. The goal was to recalibrate American interests in a region where the United States, Obama believed, had no choice but to minimize its footprint.
