On Friday, President Trump announced he would not certify the Iran nuclear deal. The agreement was negotiated in 2015 by President Obama and lifted sanctions on the country in exchange for restrictions on Iran's nuclear program.

Trump has not fully withdrawn from the agreement. Instead, he's asked congress to decide create a new law determining at what point to reimpose sanctions.
