Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recently agreed that Iran is complying with the rules of Obama’s 2015 nuclear deal, confirming that it is successful, asserts Zack Beauchamp of Vox. He writes that Trump made a major U-turn after harshly criticizing the deal because he realized its efficacy in limiting Iran’s nuclear potential. The president expressed this through Tillerson to not highlight his significant change in policy, implies Beauchamp. He infers that the deal will remain in place as Trump has understood that there is no better option.
The Iran Nuclear Deal was a failure and allows Iran to become a significant threat, argues Fred Fleitz of Fox News. He lists several ways in which Iran is breaking the rules of the agreement, such as not allowing monitors full access to its military sites, speculating that the country is on its way to making nuclear weapons. In his view, the way the deal is set up allows Iran to pursue a nuclear program without even breaking the rules. Fleitz calls on Trump to end the deal and set up tougher rules to ensure that Iran cannot build nuclear weapons.
