Donald Trump Renews National Emergency with Respect to Iran

President Donald Trump reportedly informed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the U.S. will not be flexible with European powers in negotiating changes to the stipulations and limitations around Iran's nuclear program.

Trump is demanding "significant changes" to the Iran deal, not just additional agreements between the US and the European nations, and said he would pull out of the deal if those changes aren't made, Israeli officials told Axios.

A top United States general signaled support for the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday, saying it played an important role in addressing Tehran's weapons program.

"Moreover, I remind you that Iran declares, on an nearly daily basis - including recently, its intention to wipe out the State of Israel".

The Iran nuclear deal was agreed to during the Obama administration.


Netanyahu discussed Iran in similar terms to those in his speech at AIPAC last week, pressing that, to Iran, Israel is the "little Satan" standing in the way of Iran's goal of Middle Eastern - and eventually - world domination. "Israel is not a party to the talks directly but is updated on their contents".

The signing of the Iran nuclear deal in 2015 opened the floodgates for all Mideast regional powers to pursue their own nuclear programs, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

Israeli officials said that they believe Trump is serious in his threat to withdraw from the deal by mid- May unless these three European governments - the "E3" - demonstrate their willingness to renegotiate on these points.

Netanyahu and Trump's meeting on Monday was their fifth over the past year.

Republicans in Congress have tried to sabotage the deal by passing sanctions against the country's ballistic missile program, as well as sanctions meant to stifle financing of Iran proxy Hezbollah. Given the state of unrest at home, it's possible that Iran's leaders may be reconsidering their hard-line stance on modifications - if only because reimposing the sanctions would rapidly undo what economic progress has been made since they were lifted, possibly leading to another round of destabilizing demonstrations.
