The decision by the U.S. president to walk away from the Iran nuclear accord should come as no surprise after he described it as one of the worst deals ever.
Trump ignored appeals from European allies to stick with the deal created to stop Iran’s nuclear program.
Iranian President, Hassan Rouhani, said his country will negotiate with Europe, Russia and China to remain in the nuclear deal if possible.
