Typical Trump … open mouth insert foot

President Donald Trump announced Friday that he will decertify Iran’s compliance with the landmark 2015 nuclear deal, throwing the Obama-era agreement into doubt but stopping short of calling on Congress to reimpose nuclear sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

"History has shown that the longer we ignore a threat, the more dangerous that threat becomes," Trump said. "We will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence, more terror and the very real threat of Iran’s nuclear breakout."

The plan outlined by Trump on Friday strikes a blow against the Iran deal without outright killing it, punting the agreement’s future to Congress, while imposing fresh sanctions on Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps over its alleged support for terrorist groups.
