The unrest in Iran has jolted the political ecosystem in Washington, where Iran policy remains a flash point for the capital's big wigs including Trump.
President Trump is expected to announce Friday that he will abide by an international nuclear deal with Iran for now, but ask Congress to attach new caveats that could either strengthen the deal or lead to its rupture.
The international nuclear agreement with Iran is a "closed issue" and cannot be extended or changed in any way, stated Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
President Trump must decide by Thursday whether to once again waive economic sanctions on Iran, a task imposed on him by a deal he holds in contempt and appears to be preparing to ditch.
There's a growing push both inside and outside the administration to craft a way to acknowledge what many see as Iran's violations of the nuclear agreement without precipitating a crisis.
The Trump administration certified to Congress late Monday that Iran has continued to meet the required conditions of its nuclear deal with the United States and other world powers.
