Politics Day: Trump Announces US to Pull Out of Iran Nuclear Deal

May 9, 2018

The United States will be withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, which was a deal that President Obama's administration spent two years negotiating. President Trump announced the news yesterday calling the agreement "rotten." 

"What this means is that there will be severe limits on American corporations dealing with Iran in terms of trade and in terms of investment," explains Wayne Moyer of Grinnell College. 

"The problem is that if the agreement collapses and the Iranians then restart their enriching of uranium, what will the U.S. do then?"

During this hour of River to River, host Ben Stanton talks with  Moyer and Jonathan Hassid, assistant professor of political science at Iowa State University. 

They also discuss Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's trip to North Korea, and the results of Tuesday's primaries.
