National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told Congress that President Trump has made a final decision to decertify the Iran nuclear deal, per NBC. This decision was expected, though not formally announced. Trump has been hinting at an impending announcement all week.
What's next: Congress has 60 days to decide whether to reimpose the sanctions against Iran that were lifted in exchange for roll backs to Iran's nuclear program in the 2015 deal.
