US President Donald Trump says he will announce whether Washington will pull out of the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday.
I will be announcing my decision on the Iran Deal tomorrow from the White House at 2:00pm.

The US is to formally decide on the issue on May 12 as European allies of the United States, particularly the UK, are reportedly trying to convince the president to stay in the deal backed by five other world powers.
Trump’s Monday tweet follows his attack on a top official from the Obama administration in charge of negotiations that yielded the deal in 2015.
“The United States does not need John Kerry’s possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy on the very badly negotiated Iran Deal. He was the one that created this MESS in the first place,” he tweeted Sunday to point the finger at the former secretary of state.
