National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said President Trump is not considering leaving the Iran deal yet.

  • Haley: "Right now you're going to see us stay in the deal… we're in the deal to see how we can make it better," to Chuck Todd on Meet the Press.
  • McMaster: "The president is not walking away from the deal yet," to Fox News Sunday's James Rosen.
  • Tillerson: "We want to take the agreement as it exists today ... and then begin the process of addressing these flaws," to Jake Tapper on State of the Union.

Flashback: Trump said Friday, "We will see what happens with Iran. We're very unhappy with Iran ... I may very well end" the Iran deal.
