“The president has been very clear: none of this needs to happen,” a senior administration official told reporters on a background briefing call. “He will meet with Iranian leadership at any time to discuss a real, comprehensive deal that will contain their regional ambitions, will end their malign behavior and deny them any paths to a nuclear weapon.” Seeking to fulfill a campaign promise to tear up what he’s called the “worst deal ever negotiated,” President Trump announced in May he was withdrawing the United States from the 2015 nuclear deal.
