Macron: Trump will likely scrap Iran deal
By Luis Sanchez
Macron told reporters on Wednesday that Trump would pull out of the deal as part of a “strategy of increasing tension.”
“My view — I don’t know what your president will decide — is that he will get rid of this deal on his own, for domestic reasons,” Macron said.
He noted that such a move “can work in the short term but it’s very insane in the medium to long term.”
Macron’s comments signal his inability to change Trump’s mind about the deal during his U.S. visit. The French leader, who has developed a good relationship with the president, will now likely focus on addressing the consequences that Trump’s actions will trigger.
