Trump waives sanctions on Iran again, extending the nuclear deal


President Donald Trump is extending the Iran nuclear deal, but warns it is the last time unless the deal is strengthened by Congress, a senior administration official said Friday, Politico reported.

The U.S. suspended the economic sanctions put on the country in 2015, and Friday was the deadline for Trump to decide whether or not to reimpose those sanctions.

New sanctions will be put on 14 Iranian individuals and organizations, including the head of Iran's judiciary, but these are unrelated to the nuclear deal, the official told Politico.
