In Israel, Pentagon chief Mattis says Iran deal ‘still stands’--Tuesday, Trump ordered Iran Deal Review
Donald Trump pledged he would 'rip up' the Obama Iran Deal. The buck stops here. Rip it up.
President Trump should rip up the deal and declare from now on America will not make deals with terrorist countries.

US Defense Secretary James Mattis on Friday said Iran is sticking to the terms of the nuclear deal, adding that the 2015 agreement between the Islamic Republic and world powers “still stands and that’s all I can say about it.”
However, he also warned “that in no way mitigates against or excuses the other Iranian activities in the region including the war in Yemen that grinds on and what they’re doing in Syria” to keep Syrian President Bashar Assad in power.
The comments came days after the White House certified to US Congress that Tehran was complying — at least technically — with the terms of the deal, clearing the way for Iran to continue enjoying sanctions relief in the near term.
