The decision by President Trump to pull the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal seems to have had the unintended consequence of rallying support for Tehran. Europe is standing behind the agreement that Mr. Trump has labeled “the worst deal ever.” For more, we turn to CGTN’s Nathan King at the White House.
To discuss the implications of the US withdrawal:
- Negar Mortazavi is the Washington correspondent for Iran International.
- Pieter Cleppe is the Head of the Brussels office for Open Europe.
- Song Zhang is the Washington Bureau chief for Shanghai Wen Hui Daily.
- Michael Johns is the Co-founder of the National Tea Party movement.
