The most prominent foreign and domestic leaders are voicing their opinion on Trump's highly-anticipated decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.

What they're saying: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani spoke immediately after Trump, saying Iran would attempt to salvage the agreement without the U.S. "I have ordered Iran’s atomic organization that whenever it is needed, we will start enriching uranium more than before.” Former President Barack Obama, who signed the original deal in 2015, called Trump's decision "misguided" and a "serious mistake."
