President Donald Trump announced today (May 8, 2018) that the U.S. will be exiting the Iran nuclear deal and said that the U.S. will be "instituting the highest level of economic sanctions" against the country, according to The Daily Beast website.
He referenced intelligence documents that Israel published last week, which showed that Iran pursued a covert nuclear-weapons program in the 1990s, before the 2015 deal was reached.
"We have definitive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie," Trump said.
He claimed the documents "conclusively show a history of pursuing nuclear weapons. It was a horrible, one-sided deal that should have never ever been made."
