President Trump apparently will wait for another day to "rip up" the Iran deal, as he promised on the campaign trial.
Late Monday, three senior officials said the Trump administration would formally certify by midnight that Iran is in compliance with the restrictions on its nuclear program under the 2015 deal negotiated with the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany. The action keeps in place sanctions relief for Iran in exchange for its continued freeze of its weapons program.
By law, the administration has to decide every 90 days whether Iran had fulfilled its obligations under the pact brokered by the Obama administration. Trump made the first such certification earlier this year.
