The right question to ask about the Iran nuclear deal

The Trump administration, already struggling with a big nuclear problem in North Korea , is about to raise another one by questioning the implementation of the nuclear agreement with Iran.

A senior administration official said that President Trump will share his concerns about Iranian compliance with global leaders gathering next week for the U.N. General Assembly. The official said Trump wants tighter inspection of Iranian facilities and a reexamination of the “sunset clause” that would allow Iran to resume aspects of its nuclear program in 10 to 15 years.

Trump isn’t proposing to reopen negotiations but instead is threatening to scuttle the deal altogether if Iran doesn’t offer concessions. “He’s willing to leave the agreement if we don’t . . . fix the deal,” the official said. “He’s willing to cut bait and walk away.”
