Calm before the storm: Did Trump hint at attacking North Korea?

US Congress

US Congress

Supporters say its collapse could trigger a regional arms race and worsen Middle East tensions, while opponents say it went too far in easing sanctions without requiring that Iran end its nuclear program permanently.

It could also lead to the reimposition of USA sanctions on Iran, which would scrap the deal that the USA and five other nations reached in 2015 to limit the Islamic theocracy's nuclear program.

Earlier that day President Trump met with top defense officials to discuss the threat from North Korea and preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.

Trump was asked to describe the "storm" he was referencing, but refused to elaborate.

Trump has to announce every 90 days whether Iran is in compliance.

Trump "wants to look for a broad strategy that addresses all of those problems, not just one-offing those", she said.

While everyone was posing for the photo, Trump delivered a cryptic message to press saying, it might be the "calm before the storm".

During a White House meeting, attended by senior American military officials yesterday, Trump hinted that he would announce something about the rectification of the agreement, noting that the public will be hearing something soon about Iran.

A couple of seconds later, POTUS pointed around the room and asked members of the pool, "You guys know what this represents?"

The agreement primarily calls on Iran to curb its uranium enrichment program so it can no longer be able to build a nuclear bomb.

Many suspected the comment had to do with reports that the White House will not certify the Iran deal, which was negotiated under the Obama administration in 2015. "Maybe it's the calm before the storm". Both were discussed at the talks in Thursday with the US military representatives.

Trump spoke of the challenges the country was facing in North Korea, Iran, and Afghanistan as well as the ongoing fight against ISIS.

After that, Congress will have 60 days to decide whether to renew sanctions against Iran.
