Trump has plans to decertify the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, according to "people briefed on an emerging White House strategy for Iran," per The Washington Post.

What it means: The deal has eased Iran off sanctions in exchange for a rolled-back nuclear program, so this could set the U.S. on a path to sanction Iran and amp up tensions between Tehran and D.C. And Tehran has said it could start up its nuclear program within days, raising a potential additional nuclear problem for Trump in addition to North Korea. Ultimately, the decision would be kicked to Congress.
